CA – Charles M. Schulz Museum 15th Anniversary Celebration

The Charles M. Schulz Museum celebrates its 15th anniversary on Saturday, August 12, 2017 with an all-star lineup of cartoonists!

Jeff Smith, creator of the award-winning comic book series Bone, will speak about his work and sign books as part of the Museum’s 15th anniversary celebration.

Bone won numerous awards including 10 Eisner Awards and 11 Harveys. In 2005, Bone was chosen to launch the first graphic novel series for children from a major publishing house, Graphix, an imprint of Scholastic Books. Smith’s other works include Rasl and Tuki. Smith will headline a celebration of cartooning that will include:

11:00 am: Jarrett Krosoczka, New York Times best-selling creator of Star Wars: Jedi Academy and the Lunch Lady series will speak about his work.

Noon – 2:00 pm: Meet, watch, and talk to a variety of current professional cartoonists including Nathan Hale, creator of Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales; Svetlana Chmakova of Awkward; plus Donna Almendrala, Brent Anderson, Tom Beland, Andrew Farago, Brian Fies, Mike Gray, Jaimel Hemphill, Scott Jeralds, Maia Kobabe, Brian Kolm, Emily Martin, Haley Martin, Jeff Schinkel, Denis St. John, and Thomas Yeates.
