Scenes from an Impending Marriage/Weddings in the Heartland
Save-the-date cards, invitations, hiring a d.j., interviewing caterers, obsessing over the seating chart...Adrian Tomine took all of the wedding preparation hassles he and his fiance experienced and turned them into an insightful, hilarious and sweet graphic novel, "Scenes from an Impending Marriage." We'll talk to Tomine and Janet Fitzpatrick, curator of a new exhibit "Weddings in the Heartland: Apparel, Traditions and Memories" at the Textiles and Clothing Museum at Iowa State University.
