Graphic Novel Book Clubs: From Idea to Reality

September 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Many librarians report that graphic novels are the highest circulating collection in their libraries – even more than DVDs. Yet, many libraries have not been able to capitalize on this attractive new media due to a variety of factors including unfamiliarity, lack of access, and anxiety

Graphic novels provide an eloquent opportunity to welcome youth and adults into the process of critical reading and discussion. Their multi-modal (pictorial and textual) format provides inroads that traditional literature cannot. With minimal training and exploration, all librarians can come to understand and (gasp!) enjoy not only reading, but sharing, this unique art form through engaging patrons in graphic novel book clubs.
