Wednesday, October 19 (Noon-2:30pm)

Kate was one of the first female newspaper political cartoonists in the country, and her story is as funny as it is fascinating. Join us as Kate shares her journey from the typesetting room to the syndicated editorial page, in a male-dominated field in South Carolina in the 1970s. You may have seen Kate’s paintings on display at Blue Ridge Arts Center, but there is another side of Kate, one that is steeped South Carolina history and who sees the humor is almost every situation.
In addition to her political cartoonist career, Kate has written over 30 children’s books, Southern history books for children, which are published through Warbranch Press, Inc., which she owns with husband Jim Palmer. Her autobiographical book “Growing up Cartoonist in the Baby-Boom South” is a funny introduction to Kate’s world.
This is a can’t miss luncheon! RSVP Today!
