Chicago Humanities Festival
Lynda Barry and Matt Groening will be speaking at the UIC Forum on Nov. 5 as part of the Chicago Humanities Festival. From the CHF website:
Matt Groening (creator of the The Simpsons, Futurama, and Life in Hell) and Lynda Barry (Ernie Pook’s Comeek and The Good Times are Killing Me) first met in the 1970s at Evergreen State College, the improbable seedbed of some of the greatest graphic comic work of the past several decades. They remain close friends and continue to influence each other’s work. Two of the country’s funniest people separately, Groening and Barry together breach the comic sublime.
