Cartoonist Art Spiegelman appears in conversation with Paul Holdengräber at the NYPL on Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 7:00 PM.
Art Spiegelman moved readers with Maus, the renowned graphic novel recounting his father’s experience of the Holocaust. Now, Spiegelman has brought to our attention the forgotten Si Lewen masterpiece, The Parade, a wordless meditation on the cycle of war. LIVE welcomes Spiegelman to celebrate the republication of the book and to honor Si Lewen’s memory.

ART SPIEGELMAN is renowned for his work’s shifting graphic styles, formal complexity, and controversial content. He is perhaps best known for his two-volume Holocaust narrative, Maus, the story of his parents’ survival in the death camps and their lives later in America, portraying Jews as mice and Nazis as cats. Spiegelman’s work also includes Breakdowns (1978); MetaMaus, a companion to the 25th Anniversary edition of Maus; In the Shadow of No Towers (2004), selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the 100 Notable Books of 2004; and Co-Mix: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics, and Scraps (2013). His work has been published in many periodicals, including the New Yorker, where he was a staff artist and writer from 1993-2003. His numerous accolades include a Special Pulitzer Prize for Maus (1992), Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People (2005), Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France (2007), the Grand Prix at the Angoulême International Comics Festival (2011), membership in the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2015). He has most recently written, designed and edited a book about the artist Si Lewen, titled Si Lewen’s Parade: An Artist’s Odyssey, released in October 2016.
