FREE EVENT - Meet Khalil Bendib, Algerian-American artist, political cartoonist.

A survivor of the Battle of Algiers, Khalil Bendib was born in Paris as a refugee of Algeria’s war of independence. He grew up in Morocco and Algeria, and, at age 20, landed in Berkeley, California, where he studied and became an artist. His political cartoons have been published in the New York Times, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times and other major US newspapers.

Bendib’s first graphic novel, Zahra’s Paradise, about the Green movement of 2009 in Iran, was a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into many language. His latest work, with Pratap Chatterjee, is Verax: The True History of Whistleblowers, Drone Warfare, and Mass Surveillance.
