Alison Bechdel Receives Genius Grant

Alison Bechdel Receives Genius Grant

No doubt this year was a big one for Alison Bechdel, not only did her graphic novel "Fun Home" have a stellar ride as a musical at The Public and is being readied for Broadway, but she was just named as one of the MacArthur Fellows of 2014.

She came to fame many years ago as the author of the comic strip "Dykes to Watch Out For", which ran for years in the alternative lgbt press (1983 - 2008). The MacArthur grand remains one of the most prestigious awards especially for those in the arts. The grantees receive $625,000 in unrestricted funds.
