Hey Mom I Told My Therapist About You


Charlene Kwon tells it like it is. No secrets. “Hey Mom I Told My Therapist About You”, she announces on the cover of her graphic novel. (I must admit, this made things a little easier for me. I just sent a copy to my mother and let the book do the announcing for me…my therapist was not pleased.) I’ll be the first to confess that I do judge books by their cover, and that Charlene Kwon’s cover caught my attention right away. Immediately hooked, I couldn’t help but flip through the pages. This is more like a treasure trove than a book. Every page is filled with something new:  photographs, cards, drawings, text and handwritten notes, and just about anything else you can put on a page. Take a look for yourself at our Salon tomorrow.  It’s the last of the season, so don’t miss it!
