Hello folks,

This free webinar event may be of interest and I’m guessing you could attend part of it if all of it is not an option for you. The afternoon young readers panel may be helpful for those of you with graphic-novel-devouring kiddos. Also, there’s a workshop for if you’re interested in hosting a comic-con like event. (Another good Oregon resource for this is Jackson County Library System staff, let me know if you want to be connected!) See below.
