Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonists Signe Wilkinson and Ann Telnaes will speak at a panel at the Library of Congress this Thursday on the topic of “Cartooning in a Charlie Hebdo World”.
Wilkinson and Telnaes will address several topics that currently affect a political cartoonist?s approach to his or her work. The panel will be moderated by Martha H. Kennedy, curator of popular and applied graphic art in the Prints and Photographs Division at the Library of Congress.
Each cartoonist will be asked to describe her initial reaction to the murders of five cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris on Jan. 7, 2015, and her responses in cartoon and other formats. Wilkinson and Telnaes will share their perceptions about collective responses to the events from the cartooning community.
The event is free. Visit this press release for information on location.
