Visit with BDN’s George Danby

The Pulitzer Prize Centennial Campfire Initiative series, sponsored by the Maine Humanities Council, continues as the Auburn Public Library welcomes Bangor Daily News staff editorial cartoonist George Danby. Danby’s cartoons have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Time, Newsweek and Down East… countless other publications including 500 weeklies. In the late 1970s into the 1980s he was staff cartoonist for The New Haven Register and The Providence-Journal Bulletin. He has drawn over 25,000 cartoons since 1974. Frankly, he’s exhausted!

His first collection of editorial cartoons entitled “The Essential Danby,” was released in October of 2014 through Islandport Press.

Danby will share from his book, talk about the process of developing a given cartoon and what he believes is the appeal of political and social cartoons.
