Tom Batiuk, creator of the famous Funky Winkerbean comic strip, will be giving a talk and signing of his latest book, Lisa's Legacy Trilogy. Timed to the 10th anniversary of Lisa’s Story: The Other Shoe, in which Lisa battles and ultimately succumbs to breast cancer, Batiuk expands Lisa’s universe with two new titles: Prelude: Lisa’s Story Begins and The Last Leaf: Lisa’s Story Concludes.

Batiuk was recognized as one of three finalists in the cartooning category of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize awards for Lisa's Story. His Funky Winkerbean and Crankshaft comic strips are carried in over 700 papers throughout the U.S. In 1006 he was honored by the American Cancer Society and presented its Cancer Cure Hall of Fame Award.
