Lineup Announced for Editorial Cartoonist’s Online Confab

The AAEC has announced the preliminary lineup for their virtual convention on Oct. 8-9, 2021.

All the events on Saturday, Oct. 9, are free and open to the public, including a discussion with this year’s three Pulitzer Prize finalists on the award’s notorious 2021 non-decision, and a conversation with Keith Knight on the next season of “Woke.”  There will also be panels on staying sane — and creative — during the pandemic, and more. The complete schedule, including times and links to the specific webinars, will be released next week.
