Event Description

Eugene Public Library will host a free illustrated talk for all ages by internationally-syndicated "Stone Soup" cartoonist Jan Eliot - just in time for Mother's Day weekend.

Eugene's own Jan Eliot started cartooning as a young divorced mother trying to raise two daughters, work full-time, make ends meet, and still have a little fun. These days, her syndicated strip "Stone Soup" celebrates a loving, hilarious, blended, extended family - and it's read by millions of fans in more than 250 newspapers worldwide!

Her latest book is the eighth volume of collected "Stone Soup" strips, "We'll Be REally Careful!" Eliot's books will be available for purchase and signing at the talk courtesy of the University of Oregon Bookstore/Duck Store.

Sponsored by Eugene Public Library, University of Oregon Bookstore/Duck Store, Friends of the Library, and Eugene Public Library Foundation.

  • It's not just an NFL problem, it's a societal problem
  • It's just a few players that make everyone look bad
  • It's always been a problem, but the media has brought the spotlight
