-  Cartoonist, playwright, screenwriter and children's book author and illustrator Jules Feiffer has had a remarkable creative career turning contemporary urban anxiety into witty and revealing commentary for more than 50 years. From his Village Voice editorial cartoons to his plays and screenplays including "Little Murders" and "Carnal Knowledge," Feiffer's satirical outlook has influenced countless others. He is the first cartoonist commissioned by The New York Times to create a comic strip for its op-ed page. Since then, he has shifted his focus toward writing and illustrating books for children and young adults. He has won a Pulitzer Prize and a George Polk Award for his cartoons, an Obie for his plays, an Academy Award for the animation of his cartoon satire "Munro" and Lifetime Achievement awards from the Writers Guild of America and the National Cartoonist Society. He has been honored with major retrospectives at the New York Historical Society, the Library of Congress and the School of Visual Arts. He is the illustrator of Norton Juster's "The Odious Ogre" and the author of "Backing into Forward: A Memoir."
