The Department of English and the Dean of FASS are delighted to announce that the 2019-2020 Munro Beattie lecture will be delivered by the renowned Canadian graphic novelist who publishes under the name of Seth.

Seth’s cartoons have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, McSweeneys Quarterly, and on the cover of The New Yorker. He is the creator of the comic book series Palookaville. Other books include It’s a Good Life if You Don’t Weaken (1996) and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists (2011). His most recent book, Clyde Fans: A Picture Novel (2019) has been hailed by the New York Times as “a masterwork.”

Guided by images from his work, Seth’s talk, entitled “Inkwell’s End,” will offer an overview of his career so far, from his childhood interest in comics and the work of the cartoonists who influenced him to his current and future projects.

This free public lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing.
