SF – Hanukkomics Presentation

Cartoonist Hilary Price appears at the Jewish Community Library on Wednesday, March 14th at 7:00 PM, co-presented by the Cartoon Art Museum.

Press Release:

In this funny and light-hearted presentation, cartoonist Hilary Price will explain the process through which her ideas become cartoons, share secular and Jewish-themed strips, and draw cartoon snippets on the spot. All of Price’s cartooning secrets will be revealed, including the story of how she became a cartoonist, and how her Jewish identity contributed to her artistic development.

Hilary Price has been writing and drawing Rhymes with Orange, her daily newspaper comic strip, since 1995. At the age of 25, she was the youngest woman ever to have a syndicated strip; the strip now appears in 375 papers internationally. Hilary has taught cartooning workshops at the Cartoon Art Museum and the Charles M. Schulz Museum. She now splits her time between Northampton, Massachusetts and Brattleboro, Vermont. When not cartooning, Price plays ice hockey and spoils her overly large cat.

NYC – Futureface Signing + Presentation

Author Alex Wagner appears in conversation with Ta-Nehisi Coates on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM  about her new memoir FUTUREFACE.

The daughter of a Burmese mother and a white American father, journalist Alex Wagner (CBS News, The Atlantic) grew up thinking of herself as a “Futureface” — a proud part of our world’s mixed-race future.

But her post-racial ideals grew more complicated when a family mystery led her into an epic global journey to understand the truth of her ancestry. Join Wagner, author of the gripping new book Futureface, and National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between the World and Me) for a profound conversation on the American experience of race, immigration, exile and identity. Who do we believe ourselves to be — and who are we really?

A book signing follows the event.

ABOUT THE BOOK: When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-’60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.

From TEE FRANKLIN (NAILBITER’s “THE OUTFIT,” Love is Love) and JENN ST-ONGE (Jem & The Misfits), BINGO LOVE is a touching story of love, family, and resiliency that spans over 60 years.
