We're constantly telling you that an opportunity to hear award-winning cartoonist Chris Ware speak is not to be missed-- it isn't, and here's your chance! Today, Wednesday, January 29th, at 7:30 pm, Chris Ware will be at Rutgers-Camden's Campus Center, presenting a lecture that is free and open to the public.

Chris Ware's visit is part of Rutgers's celebrated Writers in Camden series. I love that graphic novels are being taught more and more often in colleges and universities; either in their own courses or alongside more traditional prose texts across all disciplines. And I can't imagine a more eloquent voice on the subject of literary graphic novels than the one you'll hear tonight. Plus! There's another comics tie-in: Rutgers is simultaneously hosting an exhibit on the graphic novel, with artwork from Julie Doucet, Justin Green, Carol Tyler, and many more influential cartoonists.
