From an e-mail sent out to all who sign up for updates at The Nation (signed by Peter Rothberg):
Nation publisher Victor Navasky and award-winning political caricaturist David Levine will be appearing this Tuesday in a discussion about the importance of opinion journalism and the ethical responsibilities of cartoonists.
Navasky will read selections from his new book, A MATTER OF OPINION, and tell the story of how The Nation staff nearly revolted against him in 1984 when he decided to publish Levine's drawing of Henry Kissinger screwing the world. Levine will discuss ethical and aesthetic issues as well, and the two will open up the conversation to audience questions.
Tuesday, July 12,
