New Online Video series features New Yorker Cartoon Editor; Feiffer & Chast Sign & Speak at The Strand

loungeToday’s weekly blog from The New Yorker’s Cartoon Editor features  what promises to be a recurring feature, The Cartoon Lounge, a video shot in Bob Mankoff’s office at the magazine’s Times Square address (for those interested in New Yorker minutia, the actual cartoonists lounge, where cartoonists gather weekly before sitting down with the editor, is just a few feet away from the office seen in the video).

I can’t remember a time when New Yorker artists have been so honored and acknowledged. Three memoirs by the magazine’s contributors hit the New York Times Best Seller list: Mimi Pond’s Over Easy, Bob Mankoff’s How About Never? Is Never Good for You? and Roz Chast’s  Can’t We Talk About Something More PleasantLiza Donnelly’s Women on Men was selected as a finalist for The Thurber Prize for American Humor. Alison Bechdel was recently awarded a MacArthur grant, and just yesterday it was announced that Ms. Chast’s memoir is on the long list for the National Book Award in nonfiction.  Congratulations to each and every one!
