Join the inimitable and former Cartoonist Laureate of Vermont, Ed Koren, for a talk on his new book, Koren: In the Wild.
ABOUT THE BOOK: A collection of cartoons from The New Yorker cartoonist Edward Koren, on country life, exurbanites, locals, and the ironies of living in the boonies. Nothing is sacred: gas stations, vegetarians, parenting, animals, gourmands, country stores…all are examined with the unique perspective and creativity of this brilliant observer (and artist) of “the wild.”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Edward Koren has long been associated with the The New Yorker magazine, where he has published over 1100 cartoons, as well as numerous covers and illustrations. He has also contributed to many other publications, written and illustrated several books for children, and illustrated many more in various genres.
Koren has deep roots in both New York City and Vermont, where he lives with his family and has been a member of the Brookfield Volunteer Fire Department for 30 years. In 2007, he received The Vermont Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts, and served a three-year term as Vermont’s second Cartoonist Laureate (Vermont is the only state in the nation with a Cartoonist Laureate.)
