Interactive and In-Person

The CBC Graphic Novel Committee presents our fifth San Diego Comic-Con 2023 panel: Interactive and In-Person.

Hooray! Your school or library has booked a graphic novel creator for an in-person event. What might you expect? Lots of excitement to be sure, but these authors discuss just how important it is for them to connect with the kids on visits, whether it’s drawing with them or giving them some helpful advice. This panel shares ideas about what an educator, librarian, or bookseller can do to help make their interactive and in-person event the best it can be.
