Vikings Talk…about Graphic Novels

This Wednesday (Jan. 24) come to the library to discuss Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant by Tony Cliff.  We’ll also talk more generally about graphic novels.  Do you have a favourite to recommend?  Are you new to graphic novels and looking for suggestions?  Everyone is welcome.

Meet in the Magazine Nook.  Bring your lunch (you can eat during Library Events) and we’ll provide Hot Chocolate.

UPDATE:

Thanks to all who came.  We had a very lively chat about lots of different graphic novels.  It`s clear that graphic novels have some big fans at North.

For those who (over)heard our conversation about Squirrel Girl, here`s a video demonstrating just how natural her powers are:
