Sunday Comic Book Brunch at #AASL13 -- lots of fun in store!!!

School librarians are in for a treat! We're turning the traditional author brunch into a celebration of the Sunday Comics -- so break out your favorite pajamas and join the crowd! Here are the details:
AASL Author Brunch
Sunday Comic Book Celebration
Sunday, November 17, 2013
9:00 - 11:00 am
2013 AASL National Conference
Hartford, CT
tickets required

We have a stellar line-up of comic book creators for all ages:

Jarrett Krosoczka will moderate the panel with Jennifer and Matt Holm, Raina Telgemeier, and Faith Erin Hicks. We’ll hear their thoughts on
  • why graphic novels and comic books draw kids to them again and again, 
  • how we can incorporate kids’ passion for reading comic books in our lessons on the Common Core, and 
  • how they use their experiences growing up to create stories that stay with us long after reading. 
You’ll see these artists draw, talk and laugh with one another in this lively brunch.

Are you too far to come? Join us at the Twitter hashtag #aasl13 on Sunday morning, November 17th. Jarrett will be taking questions from the audience here and at home through live tweets!

Hope the see you there!

  1. Mary Ann, I'd love to know how this is. I am a big fan of Faith Erin Hicks; we have read 4 of her books with my 7th grade graphic novel book group. If there are any great handouts please grab me a copy. Thanks! Melissa McAvoy
