During this webinar, we’ll explore the assets found in graphic novel and comics formats that support adolescent development. We’ll discuss collections that best address teen interests and needs, as well as resources that are strong in supplying ongoing information for collection development and readers’ advisory work.
We’ll share recent fiction and nonfiction graphic novel and comics titles, as well as programming ideas that address contemporary teen literacy development.
At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:
- Be familiar with high interest topics for teens that are well represented in graphic novel and other comics formats.
- Be familiar with perennial graphic novel creators, titles and publishers producing teen-friendly graphic novels.
- Be able to locate resources for finding engaging and appropriate graphic novels for teen readers.
- Be able to connect graphic novels and traditional print fiction and nonfiction when conducting readers’ advisory work with teens.
- Have tools for locating programming support, in both best practices and grant opportunities.
