On June 16th, WUGA is celebrating local cartoonist and illustrator Eleanor Davis, whose colorful and distinctive illustrations often appear in the New York Times and in The New Yorker. Last year NPR included Eleanor’s book You & a Bike & a Road in their list of best books of 2017. An earlier book of her comics, called How to be Happy, was included in NPR’s reader poll last year of the top 100 graphic and comic novels.
