TOON Books and Young Readers
Fri, May 20, 2011 4 PM
Francoise Mouly, the art editor at the New Yorker magazine since 1993, discusses her efforts to promote literacy in children through such efforts as founding TOON Books, a series of hardcover comic books for children.

Mouly has been a key figure in comics since the early 1980s, when she cofounded the alternative comics' magazine RAW, which featured the work of Charles Burns, Gary Panter, and Chris Ware, to name just a few. In 2008, she launched TOON Books,with projects drawn by such acclaimed artists as Jeff Smith, Jay Lynch, Art Spiegelman, and Nadja Spiegelman (Mouly and Art Spiegelman’s daughter). The line of books has been a huge success with libraries, educators, and, most importantly, young readers.

Presented in conjunction with Ohio State’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum.
