NH – Cartoon Journalism Lecture

Joe Sacco speaks on Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 5pm

Where: Kemeny 008, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH

Sacco traveled to the Middle East for the first time in 1992 and came away from Israel and the occupied territories with the material that would make up his groundbreaking two-part comic book series Palestine. An accessible, thoughtful, and moving book of Middle East political journalism achieved through the innovative use of comics, Palestine won an American Book Award. Sacco’s first major follow-up to the book was titled Safe Area Gorazde and based upon Sacco’s recent travels to the war-torn region. It received major attention from the mainstream press, such as TIME magazine, The New York Times, and NPR.

Presented in collaboration with The Center for Cartoon Studies and the Leslie Center for the Humanities at Dartmouth College.  Sponsored by the Will and Ann Eisner Family Foundation.
