Graphic novelist and cartoonist Alison Bechdel brings her book tour for her new graphic memoir, “Are You My Mother?” to the D.C. area with an appearance at Politics & Prose (5015 Connecticut Ave., N.W.) tonight at 7 p.m.

Bechdel’s first graphic memoir, “Fun Home,” focused on her father and his secret life as a gay man; her new book will focus on her mother, using the same pop culture and literary allusions she’s known for.

This event is free and open to the public.
