Journalist and author Michael Tisserand (who wrote books including The Kingdom of Zydeco and Sugarcane Academy: How a New Orleans Teacher and His Storm-Struck Students Created a School to Remember) will share his new biography, Krazy, a massive book about the life and work of cartoonist George Herriman. Herriman is best known for creating the comic strip Krazy Kat, which ran from 1913 to 1944. Tisserand worked on this book for ten years, and it will explore the life of the artist as well as American pop culture and history.
