AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR KEN KRIMSTEIN HERE DECEMBER 12, 7:30-9:00 PM TO TALK ABOUT THE THREE ESCAPES OF HANNAH ARENDT: A TYRANNY OF TRUTH
A GRAPHIC BIOGRAPHY THAT WAS A FINALIST FOR THE 2018 NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD
Our member, Ken Krimstein has created cartoons in the New Yorker, Barron’s, Harvard Business Review, Punch, The National Lampoon, The Wall Street Journal and the Chicago Tribune.
He will be with us to present his graphic novel, The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt, which was a 2018 finalist for the National Jewish Book Award.
Ken uses his educational entertaining style that often comments on political and cultural subjects to tell the story of one of the 20th century’s most important thinkers. Her ideas on power and evil, democracy, and authority always speak to the concern of those living in vulnerable democratic societies. Her famous phrase, “the banality of evil” written about the Eichmann trial speaks to us today. Through his comic book style, Ken weaves these challenging concepts into the harrowing and complex life she lead.
Join us and invite others.
Thursday evening, December 12, 7:30-9:00 PM
at Infinity Foundation, 1280 Old Skokie Valley Road,
