Graphic Novel Week
Elsewhere in the Kidlitosphere it's all about Vampires this month, in honor of FirstSecond's Vampire Month.
Here at A Year of Reading, we are going to veer off on our own tangent by celebrating Graphic Novel Week, with or without the vampires.
Here's the line-up:
Saturday, May 10 -- Jeff Smith and Scott McCloud will give a talk at Mershon Auditorium as the opener to Smith's exhibit "Before Bone" at the OSU Cartoon Research Library.
Sunday, May 11 -- Mary Lee will report on Saturday's event.
Monday, May 12 -- Franki will review Terry Thompson's new book Adventures in Graphica: Using Comics and Graphic Novels to Teach Comprehension, 2-6.
Tuesday, May 13 -- Franki's interview with Terry Thompson.
Wednesday and Thursday, May 14-15 -- Mary Lee reviews several new graphic novels and ponders how graphic novels have impacted the reading of her students this year.
Friday, May 16 -- Will Graphic Novel Week and Poetry Friday converge? Stay tuned to find out!
