Margaret France's Book Party @ Collab

Margaret France's Book Party @ Collab 

SATURDAY the 14th, 4-6pm is a first for Collab- a book release party! Join us to celebrate a hometown favorite, Margaret France. Born and raised in Yakima, Margaret returned in 2019 taking a job in the English department at YVC. Here’s a bit about the book, “The Genius of Bob’s Burgers: Comedy, Culture and Onion-Tended Consequences”: “This book-length critical study of “Bob’s Burgers” examines the moments in which the animated sitcom exposes the chasms between generations, explores gender and sexual identity, and allows fans to imagine a better world. Essays cover how the show can be read as a series of critiques of Steven Spielberg’s early blockbusters, a rejection of Freudian psychology, or an examination of the artificiality of gendered behaviors through the cross-casting of characters like Tina and Linda.” The book is excellent, y’all. A fun and funny read for any fan of Bob’s Burger. Bring your copy to have signed or buy one at the event.
