Steve Brodner in conversation with Rick Meyerowitz, “Living and Dying in America: A Daily Chronicle 2020-2022” Book Launch

September 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$7.00 – $15.00

Don’t miss Steve Brodner in conversation with Rick Meyerowitz at the Society of Illustrators to celebrate the release of Living and Dying in America: A Daily Chronicle 2020-2022! Every day, late at night or early in the morning, from March 26, 2020 to January 1, 2022, the political cartoonist and illustrator Steve Brodner would get to work. In those midnight hours, he would review the day’s reportage, sit down at his drawing board, and memorialize a singular person or event that played a role, willingly or unwillingly, in shaping that day. Taken as a whole, Living & Dying in America is a chronicle of those who died and those who honorably served the living — as well as an indictment of those institutions and political figures who betrayed the public trust. It is a searing and essential moral document, written and drawn on a daily basis with feverish intensity by one of the great forces of American cartooning.

This evening will include the world premiere of “Living Dying” for video and laptop by composer Neil Rolnick, with a film by Kayleigh Waters

Rick Meyerowitz began contributing illustrated articles to National Lampoon in April 1970. He painted the poster for “Animal House,” and the Lampoon’s most iconic visual, the “Mona Gorilla,” which has been called “One of the enduring icons of American humor.”

Shortly after 9/11, Rick and Maira Kalman created the New Yorker cover they called “NewYorkistan,” about which, the New York Times wrote: “When their cover came out, a dark cloud seemed to lift.” Rick would like to point out that lifting one little cloud will hardly put a dent in the pall hovering over us these days, but he doesn’t want to be a bummer, so let’s all keep lifting.
