Drawing Ire: Political Cartooning in Uncertain Times - November 3

Country Gentleman Restaurant and Catering, 9221 W Clearwater Ave. in Kennewick
From 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Free to attend - Food and spirits available for purchase.

Is the centuries-old tradition of political cartooning still relevant?

We are drowning in memes, gifs, and YouTube clips that give us near-instant commentary and humor on political events and issues. Newspapers are downsizing. And humor has become more scrutinized for language that could be considered offensive, causing worries of a public blacklash among comedians of all stripes. What is the role of the cartoonist in a time of major political and racial divisions?

On the eve of the 2016 election, join Humanities Washington and nationally-syndicated cartoonist Milt Priggee for a discussion on the history and future of political cartooning. What should and shouldn’t be off-limits? How has political commentary changed as newspapers moved from print to digital?

The event will feature Priggee’s own work as well as that of his friend—and political opposite—conservative cartoonist A. F. Branco. Priggee will also be live drawing during the event.

Community Concerts presents "Tenore" – November 4

Faith Assembly Auditorium, 1800 Road 72 in Pasco
Starts at 7:30 p.m.
Paid members receive priority seating. Individual concert tickets will be available at the door when space is available for Adults ($25) and Students ($10). Season membership is $45 per adult, $20 per student, and $105 per family.

When John, Paul, George and Ringo arrived in North America so many decades ago, they spawned something called Beatlemania and the world of popular culture has never been quite the same. Since then other singers have incited similar musical mayhem and now, we predict, the group Tenore are poised to deliver a similar cultural wallop. Why? Because The Chosen Three—Jason Catron, Mark David Williams and David Wise – Have It All. They have wit, talent, charm and charisma in spades.

And, separate from other tenor groups, they add one additional component to their sold out energizing performances – they regularly invite audiences everywhere to sing along with them, creating a powerful concert experience.
