Cartoonist Peter Kuper appears at The Strand on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 7:00 PM and will be joined in conversation by Karen Green, librarian of both Graphic Novels and Ancient and Medieval Art at Columbia University.

With a career spanning the pages of the New York Times to MAD magazine, the front lines of political cartoonery at World War 3 to the classroom at Parsons and SVA, the artist and illustrator Peter Kuper is a bona fide veteran of the graphic novel scene. His latest book, Ruins, tells a story of coincidence and fate as a New York couple sets out on sabbatical in Oaxaca, Mexico, and a monarch butterfly departs Canada for sunnier climes in its annual migration.
