Join us at the ToonSeum for an evening with Pearls Before Swine creator Stephan Pastis.
Nationally syndicated cartoonists Stephan Pastis will be at the ToonSeum and Bricolage on June 22nd at 7pm where in his own words:
“I talk about the strip, tell the strange tale of how I went from being a lawyer to a syndicated cartoonist, show a number of readers’ favorite strips, and of course, talk about some of the strips that weren’t big hits (including some of the angry mail they generated). It’s inspirational, it’s funny and it’s better than just sitting with a bunch of people in a quiet room.”
The talk will take place at Bricolage theater near the ToonSeum.
The event will be followed by a book signing at the ToonSeum where guests can also see original Pearls Before Swine art in the premiere of Stephan’s first ToonSeum exhibition!
A special VIP event which includes a signed limited edition print, and meet and greet with Stephan will take place at 6pm at the ToonSeum before the talk. Open bar, must be 21 to drink. Tickets are limited to no more than 50 for the VIP Event.
