A conversation with Françoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman will take place September 28 at 7 p.m. in Robsham Theater*. Mouly and Spiegelman co-founded the groundbreaking comics anthology Raw. Together they also edited the New York Times-bestselling Little Lit series and the TOON Treasury of Classic Children’s Comics. Mouly also is the publisher, designer, and editorial director of TOON Books, an award-winning imprint of comics for early readers. Spiegelman is an artist/illustrator and author who won the Pulitzer Prize for his Holocaust narrative Maus. This event coincides with the McMullen Museum of Art exhibition “Alternative American Comics, 1980–2000: Raw, Weirdo, and Beyond,” featuring works by Mouly and Spiegelman. Their appearance is cosponsored by the Lowell Humanities Series, McMullen Museum of Art, Center for Christian-Jewish Learning, Center for Human Rights and International Justice, Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy, American Studies Program, Literature Core Program, and the English, History, and Art, Art History and Film departments.
