Sat, Nov 16, 2013 7:30 PM
A lot of fun stuff is going down during the weekend of Nov 14th - 17th for the Grand Festival of Cartoon Art, librarian and engagement coordinator Caitlin McGurk gave me the skinny. Join the great folks at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum for a freewheeling conversation between alternative comics legends Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez as they discuss their groundbreaking series Love & Rockets and their ongoing stories about Latino and Latina life, love, and punk rock on both sides of the border. The event is part of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion Distinguished Lecture Series and the keynote event for the 2013 Grand Opening Festival of Cartoon Art. Moderated by Frederick Luis Aldama, Ohio State Arts & Humanities Distinguished Professor of English.
On Wednesday, November 13th at 6:00 PM, the NYU School of Law presents a special panel: (Un)covering Guantanamo: Reporting On Some of the World’s Most Controversial Trials.
The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the ACLU are delighted to bring together a panel of speakers with unparalleled experience depicting and reporting on the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, and the military commission trials taking place there.
Included on this panel are Janet Hamlin, artist behind Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals, 2006-2013, and Carol Rosenberg, who wrote the foreword for the book.
This distinguished group of journalists will address the challenges and opportunities of covering the most important terrorism trials of our time at an off-shore military base, discuss long-standing allegations of censorship and excessive secrecy, and consider the extent to which the United States government has succeeded (or not) in managing the public image of Guantanamo and the military commissions. They will also discuss the fates and stories of the detainees they have covered.

Have a creative itch you just can't scratch? Let Ellen Forney help you, tonight, Sunday, October 20th, at Town Hall in Seattle!
As Town Hall's fall season Artist in Residence, Ellen is joining forces with Cornish College theater professor Kathleen Collins to present "Scratch Night" -- "scratch" is as in "scratch paper," like an experiment, Ellen explains, not like a scratchy wool sweater!
Together, Ellen and Kathleen will lead this dynamic, interactive workshop exploring the analogous skills and concepts that fuel their apparently disparate artistic mediums. “There’s so much acting in comics!” Forney says. “A cartoonist has to be the writer, director, and all the actors – just on paper.” No matter your preferred medium/practice — performance, literary, visual arts — breaching traditional boundaries enriches our experience of creating and understanding.
So, bring a sketchbook and your favorite pen or pencil, and wear comfy clothes! The fun begins tonight at 7:00 PM. This event is FREE and open to the public, and you are strongly encouraged to "RSVP" so they have an idea of how many people to expect. Beautiful Town Hall is located at 1119 Eighth Avenue, Seattle.
Join Kipp for a conversation at 7:00 PM with fellow author Barry Wightman as they discuss Barracuda in the Attic, Kipp's memoir about growing up and getting into hi-jinx on both coasts with his brothers Drew and Josh Friedman. Perhaps Kipp will talk about shooting pool with the mobster Crazy Joey Gallo, attending a dinner party hosted by an aged but remarkably spry Groucho Marx, or simply playing doctor with a classmate in the former estate of F. Scott Fitzgerald... it's sure to be a fascinating and hilarious evening!
The Book Cellar is located at 4736-38 N Lincoln Ave in Chicago.
