Growing Up Cartoonist in the Baby Boom South 

Kate Salley Palmer was the first full-time newspaper staff editorial cartoonist in South Carolina. In the early 80's she was syndicated in over 200 newspapers around the country. In her memoir, Growing Up Cartoonist, Kate chronicles how she grew up in a conservative southern family and became a well-known editorial cartoonist. She also writes in the book about the craft of cartooning and how it's changed over the years. Over half of the book is devoted to a collection of her cartoons, some early and some current. Included also are cartoons and caricatures of Presidents - past and present.
