From a longtime New Yorker staff cartoonist David Sipress comes What’s So Funny?, an evocative family memoir, a love letter to New York City, and a delightful exploration of the origins of creativity—richly interleaved with the author’s witty, beloved cartoons.
New Yorker writer Tad Friend’s memoir In the Early Times, grapples with being a husband and a father as he tries to grasp who he is as a son. His father, an erudite historian and the former president of Swarthmore College, has long been gregarious and charming with strangers yet cerebral with his children. Tad writes that “trying to reach him always felt like ice fishing.”
Ever wonder how cartoonists work? New Yorker cartoons have been a lifeline these last few years. Join us when four prominent New Yorker cartoonists, Harry Bliss, Ellis Rosen, David Sipress, and Sofia Warren discuss single panel cartooning and captioning with moderator Hilary Price.
