Lynda Barry, will be speaking at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago tonight. She'll also be reading from and signing her new book, Picture This: The Near Sighted Monkey Book. I heard her speak with Matt Groening at UIC not too long ago and she was hilarious. She had a lot of great advice about writing. Lynda wrote and drew the long running comic, Ernie Pook's Comeek, which appeared in alternative newspapers around the country for many years. I highly recommend checking out her talk. I also suggest arriving early because there's bound to be a lot of people.
