David Michaelis, Tuesday Oct. 30 at Virgina St. Swedenborgian Church
Schulz and Peanuts: A Biography
Tuesday Oct. 30 at 7 p.m.
Virgina St. Swedenborgian Church
In conversation with Garrison Keillor
Schulz and Peanuts, the first full-length biography of "Peanuts" creator and St. Paul native Charles M. Schulz has been one of the most talked about books of the fall. Biographer David Michaelis was given full access to Schulz's papers in order to write the book. What he wrote did not necessarily please the family who had given him that access. Still, others, including Bill Watterson, creator of another wildly successful comic strip, "Calvin and Hobbes," have raved of the intimate portrait finally given of the artist. Watterson concludes that "Mr. Michaelis has done an extraordinary amount of digging and has written a perceptive and compelling account of Schulz's life. This book finally introduces Charles Schulz to us all."
Come hear the author talk with Garrison Keillor on Tuesday at the Virginia Street Swedenborgian Church (170 Virginia Street, St. Paul, MN 55102).
