MA – Banned Books Week Event

Press Release:

BBWRainaLargeJoin the Brookline Public Library on Thursday September 25th from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM for a panel discussion with comics creators, critics, librarians and journalists Brigid Alverson (Comic Book Resources, Good Comics for Kids), Katherine Dacey (The Manga Critic), Zack Giallongo (Broxo), and Jennie Wood (Flutter).  We’ll talk about how creators consider intended audience, the state of challenges to comics today, and how libraries build and maintain comics collections that support everyone’s freedom to read. Bring your questions and we’ll answer everything we can!

Brigid Alverson has been reading comics for as long as she can remember, and she has been writing about them since 2005. She has an MFA in printmaking and has worked as a book editor and a newspaper reporter; now she is assistant to the mayor of a small city by the day and pursues comics journalism in her off hours. She writes about comics and graphic novels at MangaBlog, Publishers Weekly, Comic Book Resources, and Good E-Reader.com and is a daily blogger at Robot 6. She also edits the Good Comics for Kids blog at School Library Journal. Brigid is married to a physicist and has two daughters in college, which is why she writes so much. She was a judge for the 2012 Eisner Awards.

Katherine Dacey has been writing about comics since 2006, first as the Senior Manga Editor at PopCultureShock, then at Good Comics for Kids and her own site, The Manga Critic. Ms. Dacey lives and works in Boston, MA.

Zack Giallongo is a professional cartoonist, cheese enthusiast, and amateur banjo-ist. Raised in the Northeast, he has a deep and instinctual love of apples, Fall, ancient gravestones, and old, crooked buildings. Although he loves all creatures great and small, his stint as an Illustration major at the University of Massachusetts- Dartmouth sent him down the path of comic craftsmanship rather than being a ranger or a zookeeper. His first solo graphic novel, Broxo is about teenage barbarians and was published in 2012. It hit #4 on the NYT Bestsellers list.

Jennie Wood is the creator and writer of Flutter, a comic series. Flutter, Volume One: Hell Can Wait, the first graphic novel in the series, is available on 215 Ink. The Advocate calls Flutter one of the best LGBT graphic novels of 2013. She is also a contributor to the award-winning, New York Times best-selling comic anthology, FUBAR, Singularity, and Vic Boone: Bourbon and Buckshot anthologies. She is a graphic novel instructor for Grub Street and writes non-fiction features for the educational website, infoplease.com. On September 4, 2014, 215 Ink published her YA novel, A Boy Like Me, a story of a boy trapped in the body of a girl who falls in love and learns what it means to be a man. She recently recorded original songs to go with it. An excerpt of the novel has been published in the December 2013 issue of Provocateur Literary Magazine. Jennie worked on A Boy Like Me while participating in Grub Street’s year-long Novel Incubator program and the Sewanee Writers’ Conference. Jennie is one of Go Magazine’s Women We Love for 2013.

Robin Brenner (our very own Teen Librarian) is our moderator for this panel. When not presenting programs and reading guidance, she writes features for publications including VOYA, The Horn Book, Library Journal, and Knowledge Quest. She is an active member of YALSA and has served on awards committees including the Margaret A. Edwards Award Committee, the Boston Globe Horn Book Award and the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards in 2007. She is the editor-in-chief of the graphic novel review website No Flying No Tights.
