Jules Feiffer @ Jean Albano Gallery


Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Jules Feiffer will be in town this Saturday in honor of the 51st anniversary of The Phantom Tollboth. He will also be signing copies of his memoir, Backing Into Forward. A National Jewish Book Award finalist, Michiko Kakutani of the New York Times says "[Backing Into Forward] succeeds in sounding like the best of Mr. Feiffer's cartoons: funny, acerbic, subversive, fiercely attuned to the absurdities in his own life and in the country at large." Jean Albano Gallery, 215 W. Superior St., April 7 at noon to 3pm.
