Cartoonist Garry Trudeau, Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of Doonesbury, appears at Politics & Prose on Monday August 29, 2016 at 4:00 PM to sign Yuge!: 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump!
Trump first announced that he was available to run for president back in 1987. While most people may have not have taken the news seriously, Trudeau sensed the significance of the moment. He also knew a character with comedic potential when he saw one, and he incorporated Trump into the Doonesbury dramatis personae. Showcasing Trump’s unwitting comic-strip career, this collection of Doonesbury strips from the late 1980s to 2016 shows us how little Trump has changed over the years.

“After thirteen years in prison, a Chinese gunslinger named Kingsway Law just wants to find his wife.

NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar appears on Monday, August 29th at 8:00 PM to discuss his upcoming book, WRITINGS ON THE WALL: Searching for a New Equality Beyond Black and White. Presented by Live Talks Los Angeles.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer and a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee. Since retiring, he has been an actor, a basketball coach and the author of eleven books, many of them New York Times best sellers, including What Color is My World?, which won the NAACP Image Award for Best Children’s Book. Abdul-Jabbar is also a columnist for Time Magazine and The Washington Post, writing on a wide range of subjects including race, politics, age and pop culture, and his essays and columns have also appeared in the Huffington Post, in the Los Angeles Times and on Esquire.com, among other publications. In 2012, he was selected as a U.S. Cultural Ambassador.
Since retiring from professional basketball, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has become a lauded observer of culture and society. He now brings that keen insight to the fore in Writings on the Wall: Searching for a New Equality Beyond Black and White. He uses his unique blend of erudition, street smarts and authentic experience in essays on the country’s seemingly irreconcilable partisan divide – both racial and political, parenthood, and his own experiences as an athlete, African-American, and a Muslim. The book is not just a collection of expositions; he also offers keen assessments of and solutions to problems such as racism in sports while speaking candidly about his experiences on the court and off.
Timed for publication as the nation debates whom to send to the White House, the combination of plain talk on issues, life lessons, and personal stories places Writings on the Wall squarely in the middle of the conversation, as many of Abdul-Jabbar’s topics are at the top of the national agenda. Whether it is sparring with Donald Trump, within the pages of TIME magazine, or full-length features in the The New York Times Magazine, writers, critics, and readers have come to agree on what The Washington Post observed: Abdul-Jabbar “has become a vital, dynamic and unorthodox cultural voice.”
