Visible Voice Book Signing: Matt Bors 5.9 6PM
Canton native and Pulitzer Prize finalist, editorial cartoonist Matt Bors returns to Ohio to sign his new anthology Life Begins At Incorporation. After his stint with the Cleveland Free Times in 2005, Bors became youngest syndicated cartoonist in the country; his work appearing in The Los Angeles Times, The Nation, Village Voice, The Daily Beast, and on Daily Kos. His first graphic novel, War Is Boring was published in 2010, and in 2012, U.S. Congressman John Larson used one of his cartoons on the house floor during the affordable care act debate. Also in 2012, Bors became the first alt-weekly cartoonist to win the Herblock Prize for Excellence in Cartooning. Visible Voice is extremely proud to host his signing, with help from Ohio City Writers and Evil Ohio Clothing.
