Pen to Purpose: Cultivating Writing as a Brand of Professionalism with David Sipress (In-Person or Online) In-Person

Please join us in-person or online for a conversation with David Sipress about his new book What’s So Funny, A Cartoonist’s Memoir, a poignant and compelling family story. Sipress’s cartoons appear throughout the memoir, accompanying the story that also acts as meditation on creativity.  

David Sipress has been a staff cartoonist at The New Yorker since 1998. He has published nearly seven hundred cartoons in the magazine. His cartoons have also appeared in many other publications including:  Time, Parade, Playboy, Funny Times, and The Washington Post. David has published eight collections of his cartoons and has lectured widely on his work. What’s So Funny, A Cartoonist’s Memoir is a compelling story about David’s life and the art of cartooning.  

Topics covered during the discussion will include: Art as a means of communication; is a picture worth a thousand words? The significance of art in today’s world, and art as a therapeutic means to deal with the past.
