"Al Jaffee's Mad Life
October 19 07:00PM - 08:00PM

A MAD magazine contributor for 55 years-with work in more than 440 issues and counting!-iconic satiric cartoonist Al Jaffee has helped corrupt three generations of American adolescents with his ingenious and jaundiced humor. Now 89, the man who invented the magazine's beloved 'Fold-in' and provided countless 'Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions' has rarely spoken about his own peculiar childhood-a story as off-kilter as anything he could have dreamed up for MAD.

In the authorized biography, Al Jaffee's Mad Life, award-winning journalist Mary-Lou Weisman reconstructs Jaffee's extraordinary life story with the help of more than 65 original 4-color illustrations drawn for the book by Jaffee himself.

Mary-Lou Weisman will interview Al Jaffee on the Strand Stage."

I'd love to see that. I was one of those American kids that grew up on MAD magazine.

As a librarian and bibliophile I've heard wonderful things about the Strand.

hey,Michele, yep as did we,

MAD gave that subversive subtext to our own life, it taught us to always question authority.

thanks for the visit,luv
