The 6th annual Morrison Lecture Series will be held November 2, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. in Reed Auditorium, located in the Trustee Science Center on the Drury University campus. It will feature author, artist, and cartoonist, Mr. Fish. Admission is free and open to the public.
Dwayne Booth, aka Mr. Fish, an author, artist, and cartoonist is the 2022 Morrison Lecture speaker. The always provocative Mr. Fish frequently publishes his work on Scheerpost, but has also been published in Harper’s, the Village Voice, Mother Jones, Vanity Fair, the Utne Reader, and the Los Angeles Times. He is the author of a number of books, including Go Fish: How to Win Contempt and Influence People, Nobody Left, and And Then the World Blew Up. Booth also teaches at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. His muse is a cankered one, and his satire is sharp and devastating.

As an added bonus, there will be a screening of a documentary about Mr. Fish and his work at the Moxie Cinema on Tuesday, November 1st at 6:00 pm. Mr. Fish: Cartooning from the Deep End is the work of filmmaker Pablo Bryant.
