Alum and NYT Best-selling Author Featured in Crain’s “40 Under 40”

Crain’s Chicago Business highlights alumnus and faculty member Jeffrey Brown (MFA 2002) in "40 Under 40," the publication's annual roundup of “Chicago’s next generation of leaders,” published on December 2. Brown is the New York Times best-selling author of Darth Vader & Son and this year’s sequel Vader's Little Princess. His cartoons are “packed with a father's insight, a cartoonist's whimsy and the kind of wit that wins over a multigenerational audience,” says writer Web Behrens. “I don’t think I know anything for sure,” Brown says in a video profile posted on the publication’s web page. “And that’s what motivates me to keep working is that I want to keep asking questions. I want to work at finding answers, and keep finding new questions.”
