Comic Art as Political Commentary

An evening inspired by Free Library of Philadelphia “One Book, One Philadelphia ”

March 10, 2010 – 7 PM at National Liberty Museum

Join Pulitzer Prize Cartoonists Tony Auth & Signe Wilkinson for a discussion about the use of cartoons in political commentary. Philadelphia editorial cartoonist Tom Stiglich will moderate the event.

The centerpiece for this discussion will be the recent circulation of Persepolis 2.0 in which two Iranian ex-patriots used images by graphic artist Marjane Satrapi to illustrate events surrounding the July 2009 Iranian election. The event will also feature the National Liberty Museum ’s CareToons exhibit. For more information, call the National Liberty Museum, 321 Chestnut Street , Philadelphia at 215-925-2800. Free admission.
