Graphic Novel ‘Smahtguy’ event at UMass Dartmouth

October 6, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


“Smahtguy: The Life and Times of Barney Frank.”

By artist and comic creator Eric Orner

Anyone who wants to pick up a copy as well as meet the artist/author and former Congressman, will have a chance to do just that this fall.

On Thursday, Oct. 6, from 4 to 6 p.m., both Orner and Frank will be present for a “Smahtguy” event in the Grand Reading Room of the UMass Dartmouth Library.

This event is being sponsored by the Center for Women, Gender & Sexuality, as part of the keynote for LGBTQ+ History Month.

Orner will do a presentation and read a few selections from the book. Orner’s readings are usually animated. Frank will be present and on stage, and after the reading there will be a Q&A session.

Copies of “Smahtguy” will also be available for purchase.

Orner said he’s looking forward to sharing the work with a SouthCoast audience. “‘Smahtguy’ includes a lot about Fall River and New Bedford — I’m so excited at the chance to share it with folks from Southeastern Mass. Barney and I both look forward to seeing many old friends and making some new ones.”
