We at ArtsPage HQ are snowed under with notices for events this month, and we’re a little red-faced that we didn’t announce this three-day Humanities Washington series earlier. But if you’re in need of some lunchtime diversion, here’s something you might try. Both remaining events, part of the City Arts Fest 2012, are free and are at noon at Culture Club, the Unico Building, 411 Union St., Seattle.
Oct. 19: Pop-culture historian Jennifer K. Stuller will discuss “Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology.”
Oct. 20: Milt Priggee, nationally syndicated political cartoonist formerly of The Spokesman-Review newspaper in Spokane, will examine “Political Cartooning: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.” (He’ll also join cartoonist David Horsey in a Humanities Washington Think & Drink program called “Inkslingers” on Nov. 5 at Nake City Brewery, if you need another serving of cartooning, accompanied by a pint.)
