Brockville — If you haven’t heard of Terry Mosher, you may have heard of Aislin.

Aislin is the name of Terry Mosher’s eldest daughter, and the nom de plume he has used for 50 years as the political cartoonist for Montreal’s English-language daily newspapers The Star and The Gazette. To date, forty-seven Aislin books have been published.

Mosher is a regular speaker on the topics of humour, history and the importance of cartooning as a communications tool. He has appeared at national conferences such as Idea City, the Banff Festival for The Arts, Montreal’s Canadian Club and numerous writers’ festivals. Mosher has also served as a judge and participant in International cartoon competitions and other gatherings, most recently in Portugal, Turkey, China, Australia and Cuba.

In recognition of his charitable work and his contribution to the world of political cartooning, Mosher was named an Officer of the Order of Canada in May 2003. He is the winner of two National Newspaper Awards and a gold National Magazine Award. In May of 2007 Mosher received an honorary Doctor of Letters from McGill University. In 2012 he was inducted into the Canadian Cartoonist’s Hall of Fame.

In recognition of his 50 year career, Mosher has been interviewed by Wendy Mesley of CBC’s The National, and an exhibition of his work is currently on display at the McCord Museum in Montreal, running until August 13.

Mosher’s latest collection is ‘From Trudeau to Trudeau: 50 Years of Aislin Cartoons’. Mosher will be signing copies of his latest best seller at the From Here to Infinity Gallery, 213 King Street West, Brockville from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, May 26.
