New retrospective out from Bill Sanders
“It has been almost five years since I started gathering details, files and assorted junk to chronicle, for my daughters, some experiences that I have been fortunate to have had,” said Sanders in a Facebook announcement. “For the last three years have written what is hopefully a coherent version of certain events that span from John Kennedy, to the election of Donald Trump.”
The Sanders memoir is both personal and political. He reveals his small-town Southern roots, his athletic exploits and military service, his courtship and enduring marriage, and his life-long passion for music. These threads are woven into his main narrative, explaining how a cartoonist works and why.
Against the Grain: Bombthrowing in the Fine American Tradition of Political Cartooning will publish as a Hardcover edition on May 1, 2018, with a forward from syndicated cartoonist and author Jules Feiffer.

A versatile artist working in an assortment of media, from hand-printed posters to nationally published political cartoons to large-scale public murals, all of his work has a common goal of educating and challenging."
