Phoebe Gloeckner

Feature

Saturday, July 30, 2005

Phoebe Gloeckner is a medical illustrator, but she also writes graphic novels. Gloeckner's stories are autobiographical, and feature disturbing content like childhood sexual abuse. She tells her stories through eyes of a girl named Minnie. One day last year, a boy checked out Gloeckner’s A Child's Life and Other Stories from a library in Stockton, California. He showed the book to his mother, and Gloeckner told Ann Hepperman her version of what happened next. Co-produced by Kara Oehler.
