Mount Mercy’s Academic Technology Librarian Vicky Maloy will present “An Introduction to Graphic Novels” on Friday, March 12 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the Busse Library Viewing room as part of Mount Mercy’s book club, “Bring Your Own Book” (BYOB).
The public is invited to bring a favorite graphic novel and share their experiences. Refreshments will be provided. The book clubs, sponsored by Mount Mercy’s Busse Library, meet monthly in Mount Mercy’s Busse Center, and are free and open to the public.
Maloy will discuss the graphic novel as a genre and its reliance upon both word and art to convey the story. The discussion will also note major companies, authors, and titles associated with the genre. Maloy will discuss a few of her favorites and highlight titles in Mount Mercy’s Busse Library collection.
“The book club is a wonderful opportunity to bring community members together who share a love of reading and books,” says Mount Mercy Reference Librarian and Archivist Kristy Raine.
