Ken Krimstein

  • The Dial Bookshop 410 Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

Join us as we welcome cartoonist Ken Krimstein to The Dial Bookshop to talk about his newest graphic biography, The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt! Ken will be joined in conversation with local artist and writer Dmitry Samarov. Refreshments will be served.

“Ken Krimstein's deeply moving graphic memoir about the life and thoughts of philosopher Hannah Arendt is not only about Hannah Arendt. It's also, through her words, about how to live in the world, the meaning of freedom, the perils of totalitarianism, and our power as human beings to think about things and not just act blindly. Krimstein explains Arendt's ideas with clarity, wit, and enormous erudition, and they still resonate.” -Roz Chast, author of CAN'T WE TALK ABOUT SOMETHING MORE PLEASANT? 

 “As an admirer of Hannah Arendt, I appreciate the significant enrichment that this book offers to an understanding of her life and times. Ken Krimstein brings his spare and elegant aesthetic to the depiction of a profound life lived in the shadow of fascism.” –Emil Ferris, author of MY FAVORITE THING IS MONSTERS
