Dana Walrath


Dana Walrath, a writer, artist and anthropologist, likes to cross borders and disciplines with her work. Passionate about the power of art for social change, her creative works include Aliceheimer’s, a graphic memoir about life with her mother and dementia; Like Water on Stone, a verse novel about the Armenian Genocide; and “View from the High Ground” an interactive installation on dehumanization and genocide. She has spoken extensively about the role of comics in healing throughout North America and Eurasia including two TEDx talks. Her new picture book I Am a Bird inserts constructive male role models into the #metoo movement. You can visit her at danawalrath.com
