Sarah Glidden

Sarah Glidden is a cartoonist and illustrator whose work centers on nonfiction reporting and acts as visual witness, appearing in various newspapers and magazines. After studying painting at Boston University in 2006, she self-published the first few chapters of what would become her first published graphic novel, How To Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, a retelling of her time on a Birthright trip to Israel, which earned Glidden a 2008 Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent and has since been translated into five languages. Rolling Blackouts: Dispatches from Turkey, Syria, and Iraq is her most recent work, a journalistic chronicle of personal interviews with civilians, refugees, and officials that Library Journalcalls "quiet but challenging, plain yet beautiful" in a starred review.
