The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists convenes at Hofstra University in the earliest days of November for several days of panel discussions and interviews. Edward Sorel will be interviewed by Signe Wilkinson; on another day, Liza Donnelly will moderate a discussion with New Yorker cartoonists Christopher Weyant and Kim Warp. There will also be a panel discussion with MAD magazine cartoonists (but I’m not sure yet who they are).
Here’s a link to the schedule.

Sam Gross and Arnie Levin will appear in conversation with Richard Gehr, the author of I Only Read It For the Cartoons (Sept.15 at The Wasserman Jewish Studies Center). Details here.
