A Conversation with Graphic Novelist and Student Madison Morris on Every Creeping Thing

Wednesday, May 1, 67 p.m.


Lowenstein Center
Lincoln Center Campus 113 W 60th St
New York, NY 10023

Join us for a conversation about the new graphic novel Every Creeping Thing. Madison Morris will give a brief presentation on the spiritual inspiration and ideas behind the story, as well as the process of working on a long-form creative work as a Duffy fellow. The talk will be followed by a Q&A and a light reception.

Every Creeping Thing is the story of a petulant girl and the transformations she and her family undergo in the wake of the 1950 polio epidemic. On the highway between suburbia and the state hospital, the family’s car gets a flat, and they find themselves stranded. Carole and her brother wander into the timberlands alongside the highway, where they encounter the uncanny: a world run by human-natured insects. Every Creeping Thing plays in the space between death and heaven, fusing the natural with the unnatural to explore the experience of being a finite piece of an infinite creation.
