Illustrated Memoir Reading with Margaret Kimball
UIndy Hall A, Schwitzer Student Center
And via Zoom
Presented in collaboration with the Art & Design Lecture Series
Margaret Kimball’s illustrated memoir, And Now I Spill the Family Secrets, begins in the aftermath of a tragedy. In 1988, when Kimball is four years old, her mother attempts suicide on Mother’s Day—and this becomes one of many things Kimball’s family never speaks about. As she searches for answers nearly thirty years later, Kimball embarks on a thrilling visual journey into the secrets her family has kept for decades.
Her writing has appeared in The Believer, LitHub, Ecotone, Black Warrior Review, South Loop Review, and elsewhere. Her work has been listed as notable in Best American Comics.
Her hand lettering and illustrations have been published around the world, and she’s worked with clients like Smithsonian Magazine, Macy’s, Marks & Spencer, Boston Globe, Little, Brown, Simon & Schuster, Diageo, Ogilvy, Random House, and many others.
Born in New England, Margaret studied illustration at the University of Connecticut. She has two MFA degrees from the University of Arizona, one in creative writing and one in illustration. She lives with her family in Indianapolis.
