Comics are for kids, right? Emphatically no. Graphic novels are an incredibly rich medium which contains something for everyone, especially adults.
This session will help dispel common assumptions about graphic novels, expand the understanding of comics beyond superheroes, and provide content specific to serving adults.
By the end of this session, attendees will be able to answer the questions:
What exactly are graphic novels?
What exists aside from Marvel and DC?
What are some great titles to recommend to adult patrons?
