'Enemy of the People: A Cartoonist's Journey' @ Knight TV Studio

Editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers talks about his new book, "Enemy of the People: A Cartoonist's Journey," which chronicles his firing from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette after the paper's editorial director refused to publish several of his cartoons critical of President Trump.

Rogers had been editorial cartoonist for the newspaper for more than 25 years and was fired in June 2018 after he had 18 cartoons or cartoon ideas spiked earlier in the year by Post-Gazette management.

"Enemy of the People" also features highlights of Rogers' political cartoons over the last three years, his coverage of past presidents, a tutorial on creating editorial cartoons and two long-form comics. The book also includes brief essays contributed by notable cartoonists and journalists championing the First Amendment and lauding the craft of editorial cartooning.

A book signing will follow the program.
