Graphic Novels in Your School Library Reviews

     Guess I should be checking in more often, but I just recently stumbled across two reviews for Graphic Novels in Your School Library.   Kids & Books calls it "smart, accessible, and comprehensive."  The Library Quarterly: Information, Community, Policy, meanwhile, says "[a] much needed book . . . accessible, to the point, and playful in its subtle humor."

Art Spiegelman and the Jewish Museum (and Me)

     Responsible for defining an era in comics and redefining the medium itself, Art Spiegelman is the subject of an exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York City.  I will be doing my small part by leading a discussion for educators called Literacy and the Graphic Novel, this coming Monday, December 9th at 4:00.  The discussion will be followed by a tour of the exhibition.  If you are an educator and are in the area, please join us.  You can still register here.
