Newseum Presents “Inside Media: Political Cartoons”

Stephen Hess and Sandy Northrop will present their new book “American Political Cartoons: The Evolution of a National Identity, 1754-2010” as part of the Newseum’s Inside Media series this weekend.  Chronicling the nation’s highs and lows, the book’s extensive collection of illustrations span the entire history of American political cartooning.

At the event, Hess and Northrop will  highlight several of the 345 illustrations from the book and discuss how political cartoonists mirrored the issues of their time and wielded the power to shape public opinion.  A book signing will follow.  Join them in the Knight TV Studio on Sunday May 15 at 2.30 PM.  Seating is on a space-available basis so don’t be late.  For more info on the authors or event, click here.
