This month’s We Are Porter County Series Program features four talented female cartoonists discussing their unique artistic world in a documentary by Pamela Beere Briggs. Visit the Porter County Museum on June 5 at 5:30p for a screening of Funny Ladies. Porter County's own Dale Messick, along with Cathy Guisewite, Nicole Hollander, and Lynda Barry discuss topics of self-esteem, politics, and gender dynamics in their comics.
