NYC – Out of Line Signing

feiffer_gaiman

Legendary cartoonist Jules Feiffer appears in conversation with author Neil Gaiman at the 92nd Street Y on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 7:00 pm!

Press Release:

Everyone knows a Feiffer illustration when they see one: His characters leap across the page, each line belying humor and psychological insight.

Over Jules Feiffer’s prolific 70-year career, his nimble and singular imagination has given us new perspectives as well as biting satires on politics, love, marriage and religion—alternating with stories imbued with the playful anarchy of a child. Feiffer’s varied output includes children’s books (The Phantom Tollbooth and Bark, George), plays (Little Murders), movies (Carnal Knowledge and Popeye), comic strips (most notably in his Pulitzer Prize–winning Village Voice comic strip of 42 years) and graphic novels (The New York Times bestseller Kill My Mother).

Join him as he talks with author Neil Gaiman about his life, his work and his new book, Out of Line.

Jules Feiffer will sign copies of Out of Line after the event.
