Pénélope Bagieu

Avid Bookshop and Girls Rock Athens present French illustrator and graphic novelist Pénélope Bagieu, who is celebrating the release of Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World. Her new book features biographical shorts spotlighting 29 women selected from various eras and geographic locations who all have one thing in common: overcoming adversity and inspiring generations to come. While several are known for their accomplishments, like Bette Davis and Josephine Baker, many more have yet to be as widely recognized as they deserve. Bagieu will speak in conversation with local artist and Trio Contemporary Art Gallery Director Tatiana Veneruso. The evening also features a live performance from members of GRA, and $2 of every ticket sale will be donated to the nonprofit.
