Kirk Anderson Event -- Tues. 10 Feb.

Common Good Books welcomes Kirk Anderson on Tuesday, Feb. 10th. The event is open to the public and free to all.

Kirk’s award-winning cartoons have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, USA Today, and hundreds of other newspapers and magazines throughout the U.S., Britain, Canada, and other countries.

They have prompted stockholder protest of corporate policy, have been debated on talk radio and in newspaper columns, orchestrated into classroom lessons and Congressional presentations, collected in over 150 books, appeared on ABC’s Nightline, and been chosen for national exhibitions, at the Warhol Museum and other venues.

As the staff cartoonist for the Pioneer Press (St. Paul, MN), Kirk afflicted the comfortable and comforted the afflicted from 1995 to 2003. He currently free-lances his work, and is distributed by Universal Press Syndicate.

Kirk’s cartoons have been publicly denounced by a governor, officially condemned by a state university, personally admonished by a U.S. Senator, reviled in print by an archbishop, and vilified by police, business leaders, talk radio, the NRA and others. If there’s anyone you’d like to piss off, consider subscribing to Kirk’s cartoons today.

Needless to say, we're all very excited to have him here.
