The Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, Jewish Book Council, and the Museum of Jewish Heritage present an evening of discussion between graphic storytellers subverting centuries of antisemitic depictions of Jews in cartoons and propaganda by twisting those same art forms to tell their own narratives of Jewish history and identity Thursday, November 3, 2016 beginning at 7:00 PM at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City.
Moderated by political cartoonist Eli Valley, Ink Bleeds History: Reclaiming and Redrawing the Jewish Image in Comics represents a new generation of artists illustrating the Jewish narrative around the world, featuring Amy Kurzweil and her memoir Flying Couch, the creators of the online fiction series Radzyn, and Miriam Libicki on her newest collection of graphic essays, Toward a Hot Jew.
Join us Thursday, November 3 for an extraordinary panel, followed by a book signing reception overlooking Liberty Island in the Museum of Jewish Heritage’s Keeping History Center in Battery Park. All books will be available for purchase at the event.
This event is free and open to the public, but all guests must register in advance
