VA – How to Read Nancy Presentation

Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden appear at the Cabell Library on Monday, April 2, 2018 at 7:00 PM present their book, How to Read Nancy. The book reveals the syntax of a mass medium through the molecular deconstruction of a single comic strip. It also explores the benefits of deep reading where focused contemplation reveals a subterranean world of hidden structures and ingenious choices.

About the Authors
