Dave Coverly, cartoonist creator of Speedbump and father of Pioneer senior Alayna Coverly, visited English teacher Barbara Klaver’s classroom to discuss the graphic novel Maus. Pioneer High School’s Contemporary World Literature classes were studying the Pulitzer Prize winning work by Art Spiegelman.
Mr. Coverly was the winner in 2009 of the prestigious Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year, the highest honor awarded by The National Cartoonists Society. In addition to his syndicated work, Coverly’s cartoons have been published in The New Yorker, reprinted in Esquire, The New York Times, and USA Today and are now regularly featured in Parade Magazine.
