New Yorker Cartoonists Chat About Cartoons, Books and Being Funny
Join Bob Eckstein, Chris Weyant and David Borchart as they show a presentation of their cartoons and share how they try to make the world laugh in a time when we need humor more than ever. The fun-filled hour will focus on book-themed cartoons (all three appear in the upcoming book, The Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons by the World’s Greatest Cartoonists) and insights into their N.Y. Times bestselling books. Audience participation will be encouraged through a Q & A and the authors will be available to sign a copy of their books afterward. Bring your sense of humor.
