Thinking Outside the Box: The Fascinating World of Graphic Novels
One important approach to empowering young readers is to take note of what they enjoy reading most. As you may have have noticed, comic books and graphic novels have been growing in popularity in recent years. We can hardly keep them on our shelves! But what is it about comics that makes them so enjoyable, and what do they have to offer your readers from an educational perspective that’s unique from prose?
Join Wendy Xu, member of JLG Editorial and graphic novel specialist, and Estranged author Ethan Aldridge for a free webcast discussion about what makes comics and graphic novels so powerful. You’ll hear their insights on the complex ways in which comics use visuals, along with dialog and narration, to convey meaning, methods graphic novelists and artists use to maximize emotional impact, and the importance of transitions between panels and pages and how they create a highly interactive reader experience.
We’ll also take a look at some exciting new JLG graphic novel titles!
The webcast will start at 3pm eastern, October 3.
