Over the span of fifty years, Charles M. Schulz created a comic strip that is one of the indisputable glories of American popular culture—hilarious, poignant, inimitable. Some twenty years after the last strip appeared, the characters Schulz brought to life in Peanuts continue to resonate with millions of fans, their four-panel adventures and television escapades offering lessons about happiness, friendship, disappointment, childhood, and life itself. 

In The Peanuts Papers, thirty-three writers and artists, including Ira Glass and Ann Patchett, reflect on the deeper truths of Schulz’s deceptively simple comic, its impact on their lives and art and on the broader culture. 

Today on Access Utah we’ll talk with the editor Andrew Blauner.
