Today at 4: Sipress, Koren, and Smaller at Makor

Filed under: Seal Barks   Tagged: , , , , ,

Event reminder:

You can still get a ticket for the Ed Koren, Barbara Smaller, and David Sipress conversation at Makor—this is a great series. Buy tickets and get more info here, or just hustle up to Makor for funny people and wine (included in the price of admission).

Update: What a fun afternoon-to-evening—well organized, thoughtful, and totally entertaining. The Makor audience certainly knew its New Yorker cartoons (could you identify a Booth line from a single squiggle?), but the event wasn't bathed in nostalgia. In fact, the conversation turned into a meditation on how cartoonists negotiate particularly unfunny times and learn how to turn anxiety and disgruntlement (or as we say in my family, being grundled—disgruntlement + Pogo's Grundoon) into wit. Koren, Smaller, and Sipress were warm, self-deprecating, and admirably articulate, and I'm looking forward to talking to all of them again. Fuller report to follow, but don't miss the next one! The wine was good, too.
