JBM Extra Chapter Peanuts

Jewish Book Month Virtual Speaker Series “Extra Chapter”

The Peanuts Papers: Writ­ers and Car­toon­ists on Char­lie Brown, Snoopy & the Gang, and the Mean­ing of Life

With editor Andrew Blauner

Over the span of fifty years, Charles M. Schulz created a comic strip that is one of the indisputable glories of American popular culture – hilarious, poignant, and inimitable. Years later the characters Schulz brought to life in Peanuts continue to resonate with millions of fans, their beguiling four-panel adventures and television escapades offering lessons about happiness, friendship, disappointment, childhood, and life itself.

In The Peanuts Papers, thirty-three writers and artists reflect on the deeper truths of Schulz’s deceptively simple comic, its impact on their lives and on the broader culture. These enchanting, affecting, and often quite personal essays show just how much Peanuts means to its many admirers—and the ways it invites us to ponder how to survive in an often bewildering world and still remain a decent human being.

In conversation with George Freedman, retired psychiatrist, cartoon contributor to the Jewish Journal for 40 years, and author of three books.

Free and open to the community.
