Tuesdays in the Newsroom presents Being Paul Karasik
Paul Karasik, whose cartoons appear regularly in The New Yorker, Martha's Vineyard Magazine and the Vineyard Gazette, talks about his process and inspiration. An educator as well as a cartoonist, Paul teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design and gives lectures and workshops nationally about how to make comics and how to understand them. His latest work, "How To Read Nancy" (co-written with Mark Newgarden), is a deconstruction of a single NANCY comic strip to reveal the hidden language of comics. It won an Eisner Award for "Best Comics-Related Book". Vineyard Gazette readers will be familiar with his delightful graphic reports, which illuminate hidden corners of the Island using a comic-strip format. His humorous takes on the Vineyard are featured in "One Last Thing" at the back of every issue of Martha's Vineyard Magazine. Tuesdays in the Newsroom is a speaker/discussion series held monthly in the off-season in the Gazette newsroom. Doors open at 5:15 p.m. for a short reception, followed by the program. The event is free to Vineyard Gazette subscribers; non-subscribers pay $10 at the door. Reservations are required because of limited seating.

About Edgartown, MA
Edgartown was founded in 1671 and is located in Dukes County on Martha's Vineyard. It was the first colonial settlement in Martha's Vineyard.

Those who visit Edgartown and are interested in historical land marks visit the Vincent House which was built in 1672 and is the oldest house on the island. It is now a museum as is the Thomas Cooke House.

Another house of interest is the Dr. Daniel Fisher House which is directly next door to the Old Whaling Church. The church has now been transformed into the Performing Arts Center. Read more information about visiting Edgartown at Senior Citizen Travel.
