“Rhymes with Orange” cartoonist Hilary Price Speaks at Landmark College, March 14

The Landmark College Academic Speaker Series welcomes syndicated cartoonist Hilary Price to campus on Tuesday, March 14 at 5 p.m. in the Brooks M. O’Brien Auditorium, located in the Lewis Academic Building.

Price’s talk, entitled “How I Became a Cartoonist: A Study in Messing Up” will include insights about how she gets ideas for her award-winning comic strip “Rhymes with Orange”, makes comics and lives a creative life.

“Rhymes with Orange” debuted in 1995, making Price the youngest woman to have a syndicated comic strip. The strip is now done in collaboration with Canadian cartoonist Rina Piccolo. It appears in newspapers internationally, and has appeared in Parade Magazine, People, and in The Library of Congress.

In 2015, Price was given an Inkpot Award for career achievement in comic arts from the San Diego Comic-Con International. She has told stories for The Moth and on NPR, and teaches single panel cartooning at the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont.

This event is free and open to the public. For additional information or questions about venue accessibility, please contact Lynne Shea at Driving directions, a campus map, and more information about the Landmark College Academic Speaker Series is available at
