Tomboy by liz prince book talk
Prince was born in Boston and grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As a young person, she played Little League baseball in Santa Fe.
In 2012, Prince lent her talents to help support the Boston Ladyfest, which worked to raise money for the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund and create a "lasting network for creative feminists in Boston and beyond." She has also participated in Free Comic Book Day, signing copies of her book, Tomboy, for free at New England Comics in Harvard Square in 2014.
Prince's first book, Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed? won an Ignatz award for Outstanding Debut in 2005. In 2014 she released Alone Forever, a collection of autobiographical short comics centered on dating and relationships.
Her graphic memoir, Tomboy, received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, and won a Gold Medal at the 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards. The memoir explores what it means to be female and describes Prince's struggle with gender issues. This memoir is told through short, related stories starting from Prince's early childhood experiences and ending when Prince is a teenager and has slowly learned to define herself as a woman on her own terms. Tomboy was a 2015 pick for the Young Adult Library Services Association's (YALSA) Great Graphic Novels for Teens list.
She has also published or contributed to several zines, minicomics, and anthologies including Subcultures: A Comics Anthology. Prince has occasionally contributed to comic adaptations of Adventure Time and Regular Show. Since June 2015, she has been the writer of the comic book adaptation of Clarence (Boom! Studios) with art by Evan Palmer.
