Jeff Keane to receive Silver T-Square Award

From the Washington Post
By Michael Cavna January 29 at 7:00 AM:

"IT’S ONE OF the oldest U.S. awards in comics, rich in history and lore, from presidents of the nation to presidents of its professional organization. And now, that award is also all in the family.

The National Cartoonists Society has just announced that Jeff Keane, the “Family Circus” artist and former head of the NCS, will receive the 2015 Silver T-Square Award — which the group says is “awarded, by unanimous vote of the NCS Board of Directors, to persons who have demonstrated outstanding dedication or service to the Society or the profession.”

Balcony ($60)

We've got a limited number of seats available for both, so don't hesitate.  If the event doesn't sell out, I can always add more seats, as long as I do so before February 15th, after that the prices will start to increase.
