Ted Rall Joins “Book the Writer”

“Book the Writer” made a splash in The New York Times recently. It’s a way for book clubs and anyone else to “rent” an author for an hour or two.

Now I’m part of it. So if you want me to join your book club, and you’re in the New York City metro area (NY-NJ-CT), please contact them.

(I am also available to attend functions anywhere else, but for that, get in touch directly using the Contact form here.)

NYC Book Signings Thursday and Friday

I’ll be at two book signings in Manhattan, tomorrow and Friday night. If you’re around come hang out, and let’s talk about stuff.

Check the sidebars for details.

As I weren’t enough, joining me will be brilliant political “Minimum Security” cartoonist Stephanie McMillan and awesome existential “Boy on a Stick and Slither” cartoonist Steven L. Cloud.

Cartoons & Cocktails and the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists Present:

Cartoonapalooza: Fireworks in Pen and Ink!

Meet prize-winning political cartoonists from across the country as they discuss their most controversial cartoons.

Why did Tom Toles of The Washington Post get dressed down by the Joint Chief of Staff? How did Ted Rall invoke the wrath of a legion of 9/11 widows? Why did a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Atlanta take out a half-page ad to apologize for a Mike Luckovich cartoon? Meet ten of the nation’s best political cartoonists as they discuss their most controversial cartoons. Cartoonapalooza, the kick-off event for the 50th anniversary convention of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC), is a rare opportunity for the public to meet prize-winning political cartoonists from across the country as they discuss their most controversial cartoons. Join Tom Toles, Ted Rall, Mike Peters, Mike Luckovich, Rob Rogers and five other brilliant, ground-breaking editorial artists as they talk politics, the election, Bush and beyond. The public is invited to a cocktail reception before the panel discussion to meet the artists.

The proceeds from this event will go to support Newspapers In Education’s “Cartoons for the Classroom” program, a non-profit program that provides editorial cartoon-related lesson plans for teachers. Cartoonapalooza is the must-attend event of the year for all political buffs and cartoon afficionados!

Door prizes at the reception will include signed original cartoons and books.
