The Book Table is hosting a forum on Sept. 25 at the 19th Century Club at 7 p.m. with Oak Park cartoonist Chris Ware and celebrated graphic designer Chip Kidd.

The two artists will discuss Ware's graphic novel Rusty Brown.

The Book Table describes the book as "a fully interactive, full-color articulation of the time-space interrelationships of three complete consciousnesses in the first half of a single midwestern American day and the tiny piece of human grit about which they involuntarily orbit."

Tickets to the event are $40 with the book and $15 without. More information is available on the Book Table's website at
