Nicole Georges and Cassie Sneider give tag team live, unforgettable advice. Nicole is the author of the new graphic memoir Calling Dr. Laura. When she was two years old, her family told her that her father was dead. When she was twenty-three, a psychic told her he was alive. Her sister, saddled with guilt, admits that the psychic is right and that the whole family has conspired to keep him a secret. Sent into a tailspin about her identity, Nicole turns to radio talk-show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger for advice. Packed cover-to-cover with heartfelt and disarming black-and-white illustrations, Calling Dr. Laura tells the story of what happens to you when you are raised in a family of secrets, and what happens to your brain (and heart) when you learn the truth from an unlikely source. Part coming-of-age and part coming-out story, Calling Dr. Laura marks the arrival of an exciting and winning new voice in graphic literature. Learn more at Cassie is the author of the life-changingly hilarious memoir Fine Fine Music, a memoir about growing up on Long Island, getting into rock and roll, and having many minimum-wage jobs along the way. She has been touring and performing around the country with comics and zines since 2008, and she hosts a monthly storytelling series called THE WORST! in Brooklyn and San Francisco.
