Graphic Novel Book Clubs: From Idea to Reality

Sep 15, 2016 12:00am

Credits: None available.

Members: $0.00
Standard: $6.99


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.

Learning Objectives:
  • Participants in this webinar will learn about how to promote, plan, and execute a successful graphic novel book club.
  • Participants will learn about the benefits of a graphic novel book club.
  • Participants will learn about a variety of proven graphic novels for various age groups.
