About this Item
- Stephan Pastis: 2015 National Book Festival
- Cartoonist Stephan Pastis appears at the 2015 Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington, D.C.
- September 05, 2015
- - Stephan Pastis used to be a lawyer. Now, he is the award-winning cartoonist who creates "Pearls Before Swine," a syndicated daily comic strip that runs in 750 newspapers around the world. The humorous comic strip's host of friends -- Rat, Pig, Goat and Zebra -- deliver a smart, witty and painfully honest commentary on modern issues ranging from politics to pop culture. Pastis tends to produce his comics at an unusual five to nine months ahead of the deadline. His latest collection is "Pearls Gets Sacrificed: A Pearls Before Swine Treasury." In addition to creating "Pearls Before Swine," Pastis is the author of the best-selling children's chapter book series Timmy Failure.
