Palestinian graphic novelist Leila Abdelrazaq appears at Amalgam Comics on Sunday, December 4th at 10:00 AM to lead an interactive workshop and provide participants a walk-through of her work as a zine maker and social change artist. Participants will have a chance to create their own comic zines, with Leila providing prompts, guides, and tips. Participants will leave with their very own one-page comic zine.
Her latest graphic novel, Baddawi, follows a young boy named Ahmad struggling to find his place in the world. Raised in a refugee camp called Baddawi in northern Lebanon, Ahmad is just one of the many thousands of refugee children born to Palestinians who fled their homeland after the war in 1948 established the state of Israel.
The workshop is free, but space is limited. ASL (American Sign Language) interpretation available with notice prior to November 28 – There will be an option to request when reserving a ticket.
