Comic Conversation

Graphic novelist James Sturm addressed a standing-room only crowd on Tuesday night in Hill Memorial Library. Sturm discussed the literary works, historical events, and works of art that have inspired him over the years. Audience members were treated to an in-depth description of the creative process Sturm employs as both an artist and story teller.

A mini-exhibition featuring Sturm’s recent work is on display in the lecture hall through October 20.

The talk, titled “James Sturm’s America: Cartooning on the Frontier,” was sponsored by the LSU Libraries, Department of English, the School of Art, and the College of Arts and Sciences. Special Collections would like to thank Professor Brannon Costello, Department of English, for arranging the lecture.
