Date(s) - 06/02/2022
2:00 pm EDT - 3:00 pm EDT



Comic and pop culture conventions sure are fun, but they can be so much more for libraries. You may be surprised that comic conventions can also function as effective professional development. In this presentation, you’ll learn how to get the most PD out of a comic convention, which conventions are the best for PD, and how to use a comic con as prime ground for outreach. You’ll also learn about the benefits of partnering with a comic con or hosting one in your library.

Presenter: Jack Phoenix is a librarian and writer in the Greater Cleveland area with over a decade of library experience. He is the author of the SLJ starred review book, Maximizing the Impact of Comics in Your Library: Graphic Novels, Manga, and More, and a member of the Graphic Novels and Comics Round Table of the American Library Association.
