Join us for a talk by Kayla E. about her forthcoming book Precious Rubbish.

Kayla E. is a Texas-born artist and designer of Mexican-American descent. Her comics practice centers around her childhood and functions as a map-making exercise. Leaning heavily on the fixed compositional structure and aesthetic codes of post-war American comics, she imposes order onto recollections once disorganized by intrafamilial abuse, addiction, and sexual violence. She works as creative director at Fantagraphics and is the co-founder and president of Nat. Brut Inc., a non-profit that produces the art and literary magazine Nat. Brut. Kayla is a recipient of a Princeton Hodder Fellowship for the 2023-2024 academic year. Precious Rubbish, her experimental graphic memoir, will be published by Fantagraphics in 2024.
