Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist to speak at Scottsdale library

Arizona Republic’s Editorial Cartoonist Steve Benson will share his experience as a Pulitzer Prize winner during a talk planned April 26 in Scottsdale.

The free program is from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, in the Civic Center Library Auditorium, 3839 N. Drinkwater Blvd.

The Republic describes Benson as “Irreverent. Left-leaning. Searing. And not always politically correct. That’s our political cartoonist, Steve Benson.”

Mr. Benson also was a Pulitzer finalist in 1984, 1989 and 1994.

He has received a variety of other awards in his distinguished career. He has served as president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists.
