If your child enjoys reading graphic novels, and especially if their reading has benefited from graphic novels, I really encourage you to attend this event. Kids will get to meet and interact with the artists and try their hand at illustrating and storytelling. Parents can learn how to effectively use graphic novels as a literacy tool.
The group organizing the event, Bridge to Books, is made up of local people interested in children's literature and literacy; they're teachers, librarians, book bloggers, booksellers, and of course, readers. The event is being organized on a volunteer basis and we'd love to see people spread the news about this sure-to-be-amazing event.
Please purchase tickets by August 13. Hope to see you there!
