  • IN – Arts Day Comics Event

    gh-capGene Ha and Carol Tilley appear at Holy Cross College on Friday, April 11 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM!

    Press Release:

    Holy Cross College invites you to attend its annual Arts Day: a public lecture and exhibition which celebrates the spirit of the creative arts. The event will be held on Friday, April 11 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM in Driscoll Auditorium, Vincent Gallery, and Vincent Atrium at Holy Cross College.

    This year’s event will highlight lectures by Carol Tilley, an Assistant Professor of Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois, Champaign Urbana and Gene Ha, a professional comic artist, illustrator and writer.

    Carol Tilley will present “When Comics Almost Died: Readers, Censors, and Innovation.” Tilley teaches courses in media literacy and youth services librarianship. Part of her scholarship focuses on the intersection of young people, comics and libraries, particularly in the United States during the mid-twentieth century. Her research has been published in journals including the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (JASIST) and Children’s Literature in Education. Tilley’s research on anti-comics advocate Fredric Wertham was featured in the New York Times and other media outlets.

    Gene Ha will talk about his artistic career and the comic book industry. He has been a professional artist drawing images for comic books for over twenty years. Ha’s drawings have filled the pages of graphic works published by DC Comics, Malibu Comics, Wildstorm, Vertigo and Marvel Comics. A sampling of Ha’s character renderings encompass work on Batman, Captain America, Superman, Green Lantern, X-Men, and the Justice League of America as well as many others. Ha has won four Eisner Awards for his work on Top Ten with Alan Moore and Zander Cannon and with Brad Meltzer on Justice League of America #11 for DC Comics. Ha grew up in South Bend, Indiana, attended Clay High School, and received a BFA from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan.

    In addition to these lectures, the Vincent Gallery will feature an exhibition of student art and a reception with light refreshments will be held in the Vincent Atrium, adjacent to the gallery and auditorium. These events are free and open to the public. All are welcome to visit Holy Cross campus and celebrate the arts!

    FL – I Am Amelia Earhart Signing

    Author Brad Meltzer signs at Books & Books on Saturday, January 18th at 7:00 pm!

    Press Release:

    We can all be heroes. That’s the inspiring message of this lively, collectible picture book biography series from New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer.

    “Kids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a say in it,” Brad Meltzer realized, and so he envisioned this friendly, fun approach to biography – for his own kids, and for yours. Each book tells the story of one of America’s icons in an entertaining, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers, those who aren’t quite ready for the Who Was series. Each book focuses on a particular character trait that made that role model heroic. For example, Abraham Lincoln always spoke up about fairness, and thus he led the country to abolish slavery. This book follows him from childhood to the presidency, including the Civil War and his legendary Gettysburg Address.

    Amelia Earhart refused to accept no for an answer; she dared to do what no one had ever done before, and became the first woman to fly a plane all the way across the Atlantic Ocean. This book follows her from childhood to her first flying lessons and onward to her multi-record-breaking career as a pilot.

    This engaging series is the perfect way to bring American history to life for young children, and to inspire them to strive and dream.
