    SLS GRAPHIC NOVELS IN THE LIBRARY & CLASSROOM

    This full day workshop will start with a keynote from author Don Brown, publishers sharing favorite titles and an afternoon session with Joyce Laiosa. Comic books, graphic nonfiction, and graphic novels continue to ignite the reading imagination of young people from new titles such as Tiger vs. Nightmare to Hey, Kiddo and superheroes alike. Today just might be a new golden age of comics. Comics are completely integrated into the reading life of young people and receive notice through major awards from librarians. This workshop will provide suggestions for books that work with book groups and with multi-part programs; and using comics for specific curriculum plans. We will also pair comics with other texts and illustrated books as we work to engage all possibilities for reading fun. There will be a short comic history; for novices we will talk about how to read and enjoy comics; what one should look for in comics as we analyze some specific pages; and finally looking at diversity in the recent past as well as the newest comics. Librarians are encouraged to bring administrators, classroom teachers, reading teachers, and ENL teacher partners.
