Art Spiegelman Lecture!

Comix 101 Forbidden Images and The Art of Outrage
A Lecture by Pulitzer Prize Winning Author, Art Spiegelman

Thursday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m.
at the Isabel Bader Theatre
93 Charles St.
Toronto, Ontario

Students and Seniors: $25
Regular Admission: $40

As arguably the most influential comic illustrator of our time, Art Spiegelman has changed the literary landscape and has carved out an important place for the graphic novel as a tool to weave complex narratives.

Through his writing, Spiegelman makes lessons of the Holocaust, issues of political engagement, and freedom of speech accessible and meaningful to a generation of young people. His approach to history and politics as seen through the unique lens of the graphic novel, has an uncanny ability to uncover the many-layered nature of conflict and identity.

Spiegelman believes that "open discourse ultimately serves understanding" (Spiegelman, June 2006) and that the principles of freedom of speech and the open exchange of ideas are the cornerstone of a free society. Spiegelman will present his view that silencing alternative voices/images is not an acceptable form of political engagement.

Please join us for an amazing evening that is not to be missed. You can purchase tickets now at, or by phone at 416-913-2424. If you can't attend please consider donating a ticket to a student by calling the number listed above.
