Graphic Novel Workshop for parents and kids at the Main Library – Jan 15th at 3pm

Posted by Josh Jubinsky on January 4, 2011

Graphic novels and zines go together like chocolate and marshmallows, not all the time, but when they do – it’s awesome.  Especially when it’s involves kids, and the opportunity to get some guidance for you child creating his or her own graphic novel.

On January 15th you and your child have the opportunity to learn why reading graphic novels are “really” reading!

Katie Monnin, one of the most enthusiastic speakers I’ve ever heard (seriously!!), is coming to the Main Library.  She’s published two successful books about the literary merits of graphic novels, how to use them in the classroom, and why they rock!   As a parent, you get to come learn the who-what-when-why of you and your children reading graphic novels together, and your kids get to come and participate in a graphic novel creation activity.

Parents, sign up today for by calling the Main Library’s Children’s Department at 630-2417.
