New Yorker Festival’s Cartoon Corner

Some of the New Yorker’s finest cartoonists will be participating in the fifth annual New Yorker Festival.

The festival is described as being “an eclectic lineup of readings, talks, discussions, and excursions with some of today’s most gifted and provocative writers, artists, filmmakers, actors, comedians, cartoonists, gourmands, journalists, and statesmen.”

Pretty much I’m just interested in the cartoonists! Such New Yorker notables as Bob Mankoff, Roz Chast and Charles Barsotti will be signing books and discussing their cartoons at the festival’s Cartoon Corner.

If anyone is going, put in a good word for me with Mankoff!
