DON'T MISS!: GOT IT COVERED
The New Yorker is known for its cartoons — especially the ones on its cover, maybe the most scrutinized of any mag: Obama Fist Bump, anyone? No one knows the inside stories behind them better than Françoise Mouly, The New Yorker’s art editor for 19 years, who’ll discuss them and her book,“Blown Covers,” alongside artists Barry Blitt, Roz Chast and Art Spiegelman at the 92nd Street Y on Tuesday.
“I ask them not to edit themselves,” Mouly says of her work with the New Yorker’s cover artists. “But I’m counting on the fact that I will be showing the covers to [editor] David Remnick, and that’s when good taste will prevail!” Not that their artists need be afraid to offend and break taboos, she adds: “You can either be polite or you can be funny. But they’re not very compatible.” 8:15 p.m., 92nd Street and Lexington Avenue; tickets, $29; 92y.org
