A conversation with Sarah Boxer, Jonathan Lethem, Clifford Thompson, Chris Ware with Andrew Blauner, moderator. In 1950, Charles M. Schulz debuted a comic strip that is one of the indisputable glories of American popular culture—hilarious, poignant, inimitable.
The Peanuts characters continue to resonate with millions of fans, their beguiling four-panel adventures and television escapades offering lessons about happiness, friendship, disappointment, childhood, and life itself.
Join editor Andrew Blauner and four distinguished contributors to the Library of America collection The Peanuts Papers: Writers and Cartoonists on Charlie Brown, Snoopy & the Gang, and the Meaning of Life, for a seventieth anniversary conversation reflecting on the deeper truths of Schulz’s deceptively simple strip and its impact on their lives and art and on the broader culture.
There will be a brief Q&A at the end of the program; you will be able to type a question and submit it to the event moderator. Registration is required to attend this event.
