David Horsey Wins Robert F. Kennedy Editorial Cartoon Prize; March Book One Wins Special Recognition
The cartoonist David Horsey won this year's editorial cartooning prize at the Robert F. Kennedy Book & Journalism Awards. Horsey submitted a portfolio of eligible work. The official announcment was made via press release on the 15th
. Horsey is a two-time past Pulitzer Prize winner and as respected a guy in that field as there is; I believe this is the first major award he's won since moving to the LA Times
(while staying in the Pacific Northwest) after suffering the collateral damage of loss of platform because of Seattle's newspaper tumult of the last 15 years.
A special recognition award was announced for the John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell's graphic memoir of Congressman Lewis' life story from Top Shelf, March
, citing its ability to bring back into currency the events of the early Civil Rights movement as seen through the eyes of Lewis.
The awards -- that group's 34th -- will be presented on March 22 in Washington, DC at the Newseum.
