Montreal Gazette political cartoonist Aislin to speak at the Côte Saint-Luc Library

Terry Mosher, the Montreal Gazette political cartoonist better known by his pseudonym Aislin, will be speaking at the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Library on Wednesday, June 10 at 7 pm. The event is free and open to the public and is presented by the Library in collaboration with the Canadian Writers’ Society.

“I always look forward to opening the morning Gazette to see Aislin’s take on current events, and I know many of our patrons do, too,” said Library Director Janine West. “We’re proud to host fascinating and legendary figures like Terry Mosher at the library.”

The author of 46 books, Mosher has been the Gazette’s political cartoonist for more than 40 years. His most recent collection, The Wrecking Ball, published in 2014, features acerbic and irreverent cartoons about the Parti Québécois's proposed Charter of Values, Montreal corruption scandals, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, and the Sochi Olympics, among other topics.

Mosher has received numerous accolades for his contributions to public discourse over the course of his career. In 1985, he was inducted into the Canadian News Hall of Fame. He was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2003 and received an honorary Doctor of Letters from McGill University in 2007. He is president emeritus of the Association of Canadian Editorial Cartoonists.

At the Côte Saint-Luc Library event, Mosher will speak about his work, answer audience questions, and sign copies of The Wrecking Ball, another recent collection Was It Good For You?, and Caricature Cartoon Canada, a compendium of cartoons that he edited.
