Cartoons, Creativity, and Censorship 20:00 25th Mar / The Bookworm – Beijing
Larry Feign, moderated by Steven Schwankert
Like most political cartoonists, Larry Feign doesn’t back down from sensitive subjects. His hardheadedness has gotten him fired before – from South China Morning Post – but it’s won him ample credibility. His cartoons have appeared in Time, Newsweek, The Economist, Fortune, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Der Spiegel, and Pravda, to name a few, and he’s produced animated cartoons for Cartoon Network and Disney. He’s also published fifteen books and received a number of awards. At this wide-ranging talk, he’ll touch upon the career of a cartoonist, using satire as a form of expression and dissent, differences between Chinese and Western humor, self-censorship (both in China and abroad), the Chinese language, Chinglish, and his book AIEEYAAA!: A Hilarious Look At the Joys and Pitfalls of Life in Hong Kong. Moderated by True Run Media executive editor Steven Schwankert.
