Dan Piraro: "Bizarro" Cartoonist

September 27th, 2pm
Downtown Eugene Public Library

Celebrate freedom of expression with "Bizarro" creator Dan Piraro at an entertaining and informative illustrated talk in honor of Banned Books Week. Among people concerned about censorship, newspaper cartoonists rank high. Amidst the constant flood of feedback about their work from readers and publishers, cartoonists directly experience others' impulses to censor messages that are disagreed with, feared, or not understood.

In person, Piraro's intriguing perspective on life flows beyond the cartoon frame into a wide-ranging comedic conversation. He stirs up controversy, inspires revelations, and pokes fun at everyone along the way, including himself.
