Marsall Ramsey, Clarion Ledger Editorial Cartoonist
Ramsey, whose witty, intelligent cartoons make readers laugh, think and fume, will speak about his favorite cartoons and explain the stories behind them.
"I learned a long time ago that if you can laugh at the bad things in life, you will stay sane," says Ramsey. "That is what I try to do with my work – laugh at the truly ridiculous."

He has also illustrated several books, including six children's books for financial expert Dave Ramsey and one for chef and author Robert. St. John.
