New York Comics & Picture-Story Symposium: Featuring Mark Dery

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Bob and Sheila Hoerle Lecture Hall, Room UL105, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

Mark Dery on the publication of Born To Be Posthumous: The Eccentric Life and Mysterious Genius of Edward Gorey.

Dery reveals the surprisingly serious themes woven through Gorey’s oeuvre: death, sexuality, the human condition, the meaning (or meaninglessness?) of life and the ghastliness of fruitcakes.

Presented by The School of Art, Media, & Technology at Parsons School of Design
