Alison Bechdel presents 25 years of her strip in book form, "Essential Dykes to Watch Out For", in Cambridge tomorrow night at 7pm at Lesley College.

She has gathered the greatest hits from 11 prior volumes with 60 strips not previously published in book form to give readers the full sweep of a strip she characterizes as "half op-ed column and half endless serialized Victorian novel." AfterEllen has an appreciation of the strip and its significance for the lesbian community. (Thanks to Journalista for the link.)

Bechdel, a Vermont resident, drew wide critical acclaim for her graphic autobiography, "Fun Home," published in 2006. She appears in Northampton Wednesday, Nov. 19.
