‘American Mothers’ is a graphic novel that explores the duality of our identities as hyphenated Americans through the stories of our mothers.
Claudia Marina is a design writer, editor and lecturer at Parsons School of Design. She writes about design but sees design everywhere in literature and our experiences with the material world. She chooses to write about the ordinary over grand gestures of creative genius, which she questions if it even really exists? When not writing about design, you can find her thinking about poetry or baking a pie...or writing a poem about baking a pie and what it means to be human and do these things as part of life-sustaining practice.
