Democracy Now

I am overly enthusiastic about the work of artist Maira Kalman. For one reason, her book Next Stop Grand Central is so much fun you can't stand it.

Besides that, she is also a contributor to the New York Times and has done other impressive things. Ms. Kalman has written and illustrated 12 children's books; all of them terrific. Her latest special feature in the New York Times is about the democratic process and it describes her visit to a town hall-style meeting at a public school in the Bronx.
