American writing's diversity of form is one of its greatest strengths. This series celebrates journalism, poetry, history, biography, graphic art and all forms of American Writing.

Ken Krimstein's cartoons have been published in the New Yorker, Barron's, The Harvard Business Review, Prospect Magazine, Punch, The National Lampoon, the Wall Street Journal, Narrative Magazine, and three of S. Gross’s cartoon anthologies. His humor writing has been in The New York Observer’s “New Yorker’s Diary” and humor websites, including McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Yankee Pot Roast, and Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood. In addition to teaching at De Paul University and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he is also an advertising creative director.

His new book, The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt, coming Fall 2018, is a page-turning graphic biography of the most prominent philosopher of the 20th century in the same vein as Persepolis and Logicomix
