Los Angeles: Chris Ware will be speaking at UCLA tonight, November 14th, at 7:30 pm. For free.
Chris Ware's self portrait
I probably don't need to convince you that this will be an incredible event, but I'm going to gush on, because Chris Ware is one of today's very best cartoonists, and one of my personal favourites. Hearing Chris Ware speak makes you appreciate his comics even more (if that's possible), and in an entirely different way. It's obvious that's he a brilliant man with a beautiful vocabulary- see this interview with him in Rookie Yearbook Two- but he is also incredibly insightful and inspiring about life, art, humans, and everything, really. Tonight he will be joined in conversation by Michael Silverblatt, host of literary radio show KCRW’s Bookworm. You will leave feeling enlightened, I promise you.
