An Evening with Cartoonist and Journalist Joe Sacco
Thursday, February 23, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (EST)
Please join us for a presentation and discussion with award-winning cartoonist and journalist Joe Sacco. One of the most influential and best-known cartoonists working today, Sacco created a unique form of journalism that combines on-the-scene reporting with graphic storytelling. His books include “Palestine,” “Safe Area Goražde,” “The Fixer” and “Footnotes in Gaza.”
In conversation with journalist Chris Hedges, Sacco will discuss his work and the challenges and rewards of practicing journalism in an unconventional medium. Sacco and Hedges have worked together in conflict zones and are currently collaborating on a book about poverty in the United States.
A Q&A session with the audience will follow.
