About the Event

Join Coffee House Club in discovering what goes on inside the belly of the media beast: an illustrated story of Op-Ed art.

About the Book

All the Art That’s Fit to Print reveals the true story of the world’s first Op-Ed page, a public platform that—in 1970—prefigured the Internet blogosphere. Not only did the New York Times‘s nonstaff bylines shatter tradition, but the pictures were revolutionary. Unlike anything ever seen in a newspaper, Op-Ed art became a globally influential idiom that reached beyond narrative for metaphor and changed illustration’s very purpose and potential.

Meet the Author

Artist and writer Jerelle Kraus left her 30-year New York Times art director position to write the whistleblowing book, All the Art That’s Fit to Print (And Some That Wasn’t): Inside The New York Times Op-Ed Page. Her feature stories are published in The New Yorker, the Times, and literary magazines.


Ticketed guests are welcome to stay for dinner by indicating so in their Eventbrite RSVP.

There will be an a la carte menu to choose from with a $5 per glass Coffee House wine special. You can pay for your meal with a card or your membership account (no cash).

Cover of "All the Art That's Fit to Print (And Some That Wasn't): Inside The New York Times Op-Ed Page" by Jerelle Kraus features a drawing of a nude man covered in various tattoos from behind.
