The award-winning cartoonist Chris Ware ("Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth") will discuss his work in conversation with Michael Silverblatt, host of the KCRW radio show "Bookworm."

From the event website:

Ware is known for spare and stunning innovation that pushes the boundaries of comic-book storytelling. Chris Ware's work has also appeared in many national and international art exhibits, including the Whitney Biennial exhibit in 2002. He continues to publish comic strips--which he started doing in the late 60s as a student at the University of Texas at Austin--in the pages of the Virginia Quarterly Review. His ongoing Acme Novelty Library series reached its 20th issue in 2010.
Fowler Out Loud will also present a spoken-word and literary event inspired by Ware's work beginning at 6 p.m.
