The Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa celebrates its 15th anniversary August 12, with visits from a number of professional cartoonists, including  Jeff Smith, creator of the award-winning comic book series Bone. At 2 pm Smith will be on stage in dialogue with Paige Braddock of Jane’s World and Lex Fajardo of Kid Beowulf. According to the museum, Smith will discuss his work and the influence of Charles Schulz on his art and cartooning in general.

When we visited the museum this week on another assignment, archivist Cesar Gallegos described the Great Hall of the museum to us. It will be filled with activity on Saturday.
