Teen fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson and her longtime buddy Jonah Ansell will be speaking at the Museum of Contemporary Art at 6 p.m. tonight about "Cadaver," a short film and graphic novel (available for purchase and signing after the event).
"It tells the tale of a cadaver who wakes up to say a last goodbye to his wife but discovers a truth in death he didn't know in life," a statement from the museum says. "Inspired by the wit of Shel Silverstein and the wisdom of William Shakespeare, it is a twenty-first-century love sonnet that seeks to awaken the hopeful romantic within even the harshest cynic."
Kathy Bates, Christopher Lloyd and Gevinson - who Lady Gaga once called the "future of journalism" - voice the characters. Ansell wrote and directed the tale. Gevinson and Ansell both hail from Oak Park.
Tickets range from $6-$10 and the cost will be deducted from your purchase of the "Cadaver" graphic novel. For more information click here.
