Author, illustrator, and political cartoonist Frank Cammuso will be the Syracuse University Library Associates speaker on Thursday, February 17th at 5:00 p.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, first floor, Bird Library. The event is free and open to the public.
Cammuso will discuss his work as a political satirist and children’s author. He will delve into the world of the graphic novel, an exciting and ascendant multimedia print form that traces its roots to the comic book.
A Central New Yorker and Syracuse University graduate, Cammuso is known throughout the region and beyond as an award-winning political cartoonist for The Post-Standard. Cammuso’s graphic novels include Max Hamm, Fairy Tale Detective (single volume edition, 2005) and the Knights of the Lunch Table series, intended for children. He collaborated on Otto’s Orange Day (2008), also intended for children, with comic artist Jay Lynch and New Yorker editor Francoise Mouly. Cammuso is co-author with Hart Seeley of 2007-Eleven and Other American Stories (2000) and he has contributed fiction and satirical writing to The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Village Voice, Slate, and National Public Radio.
This event is sponsored by Syracuse University Library Associates, a society devoted to the enrichment of the Syracuse University Library and the greater Syracuse community. The society is supported by members who share an interest in books, learning and the preservation of knowledge.
