Event Details

Superhero fans abound, from the halls of Comic Con and summer blockbusters at the multiplex, to best-selling graphic novels at sacred neighborhood comic book stores. The superhero has emerged as an integral part of our culture and their stories ¾ a metaphor for discussing current real world issues and central cultural concerns. Join author Robin Rosenberg as she illuminates how these icons of pop-culture and their stories illustrate various psychological phenomena. She’ll share how these analyses open doors into more general psychological themes, have led to effective ways to convey life lessons, and shed much light on the ethos of the American people.

  • Enjoy a tasting of super brews from a specially curated list of craft beers.
  • Select from menu items appreciated by mutants, aliens, armor-clad super-geniuses, thunder gods, and super-soldiers alike.
  • Use superior powers of conversation to socialize with some alter egos.
  • Snag a signed copy of What is a Superhero.

Advance ticket purchases come with a $5 food credit!
