Graphic Novel Committee
Committed to expanding the presence and legitimacy for children’s and young adult graphic novels.
The Graphic Novel committee aims to contextualize, promote, and support the medium’s literary and financial success. The group’s programming accomplishes this through outreach to educators, librarians, booksellers, and consumers; by advocating for children’s and teen graphic novels within the industry; and ensuring that graphic novels are adequately represented in existing CBC programming.
