Josh Neufeld in Oberlin

04 Nov

Oberlin alum Josh Neufeld (’89) will be in Oberlin this weekend to discuss his recently published book;  A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge . His book was reviewed in the New York Times, you can see a related post about it here.   The book grew out of his experiences while volunteering for the Red Cross after Hurricane Katrina.  He will give a talk about the book as well as his career and previous projects as an alternative cartoonist.  His talk will be followed by a discussion between Josh Neufeld and Kwame Webster, a current senior at Oberlin who is a character in the book.   Their discussion will be moderated by Caroline Jackson Smith, Associate Professor of Theater and Dance and also African American Studies.   This event will be in Hallock Auditorium (in the Environmental Studies building) at 3pm this Saturday, Nov. 7th.
