Munson with the award-winning cartoonist Carol Tyler about Pages and Progress, an exhibition in Cincinnati, Ohio based on Soldier’s Heart: The Campaign to Understand My WWII Veteran Father: A Daughter’s Memoir, the 2015 compilation of Tyler’s You’ll Never Know graphic novel trilogy (Fantagraphics). This chapter discusses narrative in comics, the audience response, and her exhibit design strategy utilizing a clothesline, paintings, hand-made props, toys, tools, and family memorabilia. This chapter contains a comparison between Pages and a different, more emotional exhibit featuring the "impossible trident” and thorns.  Images: 3 exhibition photos.
