Sasha Strong Book Launch

Loading Events

On December 9th at 7:00 pm, join comic artist Kim Edgar as they celebrate the launch of their new pocketbook, Sasha Strong! The event will take place at Dënäkär Zho (the ballroom at the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture (KIAC) in Dawson City).

Part of the Conundrum25 series, Sasha Strong is a lighthearted comic about a strong, peppy young woman with a mysterious illness. The story examines what happens when you’re still technically muscular and strong, but using your strength causes you extreme pain and fatigue. And what happens when doctors ignore you because, on paper, you’re perfectly healthy, even though you still feel terrible?
