Presentation and Book Signing (FREE event)
Rob will talk about his current book, Enemy of the People: A Cartoonist’s Journey, and discuss the state of cartooning in Trump’s America. After 25 years as the award-winning editorial cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Rob Rogers was fired in June of 2018. Rob recalls that the firing was the result of drawing unflattering cartoons about President Trump or, in other words, for doing his job. His story made international news and garnered him support from around the world. Rob will share his recent work and tell his side of the story. A book signing will follow the event.
Rob Rogers is an award-winning freelance editorial cartoonist living in Pittsburgh. His cartoons have been vexing and entertaining readers since 1984 when he joined the Pittsburgh Press as an intern. In 1993, he was hired by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Syndicated by Andrews McMeel Syndicate, (formerly Universal Press), Rogers’ work has also appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Newsweek and The Week, among many others.
Rob will have copies of his latest book Enemy of the People: A Cartoonist’s Journey for sale. Signed books make great Holiday gifts.
