Register for ALA's Webinar on Diversity in Comics

ALA’s Graphic Novels and Comics Round Table and organization president Loida Garcia-Febo are hosting a free webinar on June 12: Libraries, Comics and Superheroes of Color: Strengthening Our Reading Communities.

The press release notes, “Comics have a valuable role in teaching literacy and are a format increasingly available at academic, public and school libraries. Children, teens and people [of] all ages are empowered by the timely issues impacting our world and communities included in comics and it is even more impactful when we can promote reading through comics reflecting our communities of color.”

The webinar will focus on how comics both reflect readers and provide access to new viewpoints. Panelists include Saladin Ahmed, a comics writer, and Chloe Ramos-Peterson, library marketing coordinator at Image Comics.

For more information, read the press release.
