Webinar on Thursday, February 12 – Graphic Novels: A Gateway for Reluctant Readers

Hey! At 2pm Central this Thursday, February 12, I’m doing a webinar for the Texas State Library and Archives Commission titled Graphic Novels: A Gateway for Reluctant Readers. This webinar is specifically geared to librarians and K-12 teachers hoping to promote comics and graphic novels to their patrons and students.

You can register HERE.

During this one hour webinar, I will talk about how reading graphic novels can help build literacy. We will discuss how and why various types of comics appeal to different reader-groups, from wordless picture books for younger kids to manga for teens. The webinar will include a discussion of program ideas designed to encourage readers to get excited about the world of comics, and eventually, the world of reading.

in preparation for this event, I will be posting reading recommendation lists. These will be organized by age group, and will correlate directly with what we will talk about during the webinar.

I hope you can join us!
