event flyer

To mark its 200th Anniversary, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania is delighted to host Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Signe Wilkinson. Ms. Wilkinson will deliver a talk entitled “Can She Say That? Signe Wilkinson Cartoons A Man’s World,” providing an overview of her own career and the history of political cartooning.

This event serves as the celebratory reception to debut the exhibit Cartoons as Political Speech in Colonial and Contemporary America. Organized by HSP’s Librarian and CEO Dr. David R. Brigham, this exhibit examines Philadelphia’s role in early American politics through cartoons. Wilkinson’s original artwork adds a contemporary lens on the tradition of cartooning.
