Epicenter: MariNaomi with Grace Loh Prasad

May 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Litquake’s Epicenter as we help launch MariNaomi’s new graphic memoir, I Thought You Loved Me, a multimedia exploration of the expectations of friendship, the unreliability of memory, and the struggle to let go.


I Thought You Loved Me sifts through a meditative ghost story of sorts, taking the form of a scrapbook-esque investigation into why a close friendship from the cartoonist’s youth abruptly ended. Mari and Jodie meet in high school in the 80’s. Both are bisexual outsiders, and each troubled in their own way. A 14-year friendship follows. Boyfriends come and go. When Jodie ghosts Mari in 2001, Mari is haunted. Years later, they search social media and their own journals for clues. Though some questions are answered, Mari is equally mystified by their own youthful insecurities and relationships. All this is told through a captivating collage of cartoons, photos, and text, resulting in an all too human portrait of a relationship.

FREE, $10-15 suggested donation (pre-registration required)
