Program presented by John Bourisseau
Join Historian John Bourisseau on Sunday, March 3 at 2:00pm at Township Hall as he looks at the more humorous side of Chagrin Falls in Bill Watterson’s early work, published in the Chagrin Valley Herald from 1976 to 1979.
Bill Watterson is famous for his playful comic Calvin and Hobbes, in syndication from 1985 to 1995, but it is his earlier career that is of particular interest to us. Watterson’s early comics often centered around his home town of Chagrin Falls. Published in the Chagrin Valley Herald from 1976 to 1979, Watterson’s witty, satirical, and jovial cartoons explore particular events, places, and people of Chagrin Falls. Some notable comics even bear a striking resemblance to Chagrin Falls today, such as the current Miles Rd. construction and the looming Main St. bridge construction projects.
WHEN: Sunday, March 3 at 2:00pm
WHERE: Township Hall, 83 N. Main St., Chagrin Falls
Light refreshments will be served
