"Burn Before Reading" is a compliation of comics made a graphic novel class taught by comic book artist and author of "Diary of a Teenage Girl", Phoebe Glockner. Kira Appelman and Simone Shemshedini each wrote and drew two comic narratives in the published book. Kira's work explores spirituality and a search for catharsis through comedy. Simone's comic "Keeper of the Rain Garden" is a comedic approach to talking about ecological issues, while "Eye Swap" digs into the importance of persepective and empathy.
