This event has been cancelled due to reasons beyond our control.
Join us with Improv New Orleans: A Festival of Ideas for a special evening with Jules Feiffer, an American legend, whom the Library of Congress has recognized for his "remarkable legacy" as a cartoonist, playwright, screenwriter, adult and children's book author, illustrator, and art instructor. He will explore the role of improvisation in his many arts. He will be interviewed by Michael Tisserand, a New Orleans-based author whose most recent book is Krazy: George Herriman, a Life in Black and White — the Eisner Award-winning biography of cartoonist George Herriman, the creator of Krazy Kat. His other books include The Kingdom of Zydeco. No
"There was no format at the time to fit the work I raged and screamed to do, so I had to invent one. Cartoon satire that commented on the US military, the Bomb, the Cold War, the hypocrisy of grown-ups, the mating habits of urban young men and women, these were my subjects. After four years of trying to break into print and getting nowhere, the Village Voice, the first alternative newspaper, offered to publish me. Only one catch: They couldn't pay me. What did I care?" Jules Feiffer
We will be there with books for a signing following the presentation.
