Paul Szep, a two-time Pulitzer Prize and Thomas Nast Prize winning editorial cartoonist and New York Times best-selling author William Martin will discuss their careers. They will focus on Szep’s time as the Chief Editorial Cartoonist at The Boston Globe from 1967 – 2001 and a look at how the field of political cartoons has changed. Szep has been described as a pioneering cartoonist with “scathing wit and a drawing style that turns editorial cartoons into pieces of art.” Martin has written eleven novels, many of which are set in and around Boston and has been recognized with the New England Book Award and the Samuel Eliot Morrison Award.
