Join us at Fantagraphics Bookstore for a book signing and slide talk by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post political cartoonist Ann Telnaes on Saturday, February 17 at 7:00 PM. Telnaes will present her new adult alphabet book Trump’s ABC. An exhibition of original artwork from the book will be on view from February 10 through March 8, 2018.
In 2001, Swedish-born Ann Telnaes became the first female cartoonist to win the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning. In winning the Ruben Award in 2017, she became the only woman to receive both prestigious honors. Her work is published in the Washington Post and syndicated nationally in various formats. The election of Donald Trump inspired Telnaes to create her first original book. Trump’s ABC is a children’s board book designed for adults that alphabetically skewers our current president with clever verse and colorful cartoons. (A format reflective of the commander-in-chief’s notoriously limited attention span.)
The exhibition of original Telneas art opens on Saturday, February 10 from 6:00 to 9:00 to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the lively Georgetown Art Attack. A week later, on February 17 at 7:00 PM, Telnaes will appear for a reading and book signing. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street at the corner of Airport Way S., only minutes from downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206-557-4910.
