The unique duo are respected friends and will be in conversation to close out FOCL’s 29th season. In 1992, Spiegelman won the Pulitzer Prize for his masterful Holocaust narrative Maus— which portrayed Jews as mice and Nazis as cats. Maus II continued the remarkable story of his parents’ survival of the Nazi regime and their lives later in America. He was elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and in 2018 received the Edward MacDowell Medal, the first-ever given in comic art.
Gaiman makes a return to our series and is considered by many as one of the most celebrated writers of our time. His popular and critically acclaimed works bend genres while reaching audiences of all ages. Gaiman’s groundbreaking Sandman comics, which received nine Eisner Awards, was described by Stephen King as having turned graphic novels into “art.”
