Bringing War Stories Home

Award-winning comics journalist Joe Sacco will present “To Hell with Objectivity: How Comics Journalism Redefines Reporting,” April 20, 7–9 pm in the Trinity Hall Main Gallery. The lecture and slide presentation will feature Sacco’s work as a war correspondent in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the former Yugoslavia, and Iraq.

A 1996 recipient of the American Book Award for his work Palestine, Sacco will address the strengths of comics used as journalism to bring stories home to readers. Sacco has been hailed as a force behind the reemergence of the graphic novel. The free event is sponsored by the Committee on Arts and Lectures at CSU, Chico and other campus programs.
