"For 35 years, Signe Wilkinson’s political cartoons at the Philadelphia Daily News and the Philadelphia Inquirer have targeted malpracticing politicians and championed women and children’s rights, education, racial equity, privacy, free speech, and the joys of gardening. She didn’t turn down the Pulitzer Prize in 1992, two RFK awards, and four Overseas Press Club Thomas Nast Awards, but most cherishes being named “Pennsylvania State Vegetable Substitute.'"
Written by Jonathan Zimmerman, with cartoons by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Signe Wilkinson.
Across the political spectrum, Americans have demanded the suppression of ideas and images that allegedly threaten our nation. But the biggest danger to America comes not from speech but from censorship, which prevents us from freely governing ourselves.
In this brief but bracing book, historian Jonathan Zimmerman and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Signe Wilkinson tell the story of free speech in America: who established it, who has denounced it, and who has risen to its defense.
