Background Information on Alison Bechdel

Alison Bechdel has been getting a lot of attention in the last couple of years because of Fun Home, which is #68 on Entertainment Weekly's list of the Top 100 Best Books of the last twenty-five years. There are Wikipedia entries for her and Fun Home itself. Because she is still young and working tirelessly, it's probably not a surprise that she has a strong online presence. Check out her blog, her Flickr page, her YouTube channel, and her Facebook profile. It's very easy to get to know more about her as a writer and person.

These videos have a lot to teach us about Fun Home. If you missed me showing them in class, then check them out here.
