Kids Reads Comics Festival 2013

KRC13_letter_prev

The Kids Read Comics celebration in Ann Arbor, Michigan returns on June 22nd-23rd! Guests include Ben Hatke (Zita the Space Girl), Rafael Rosado (Giants Beware!), Raina Telgemeier (Smile), Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy) John Green (Teen Boat!), John Martin (Vordak), Jim Ottaviani (Primates) and more!

About the Kids Read Comics Celebration
Generations of kids have grown up reading and loving comics. And it’s not hard to see why comics have captured the imagination of kids and teens — with their unique blend of words and pictures, even the most everyday comics stories open up worlds of wonder.

And beyond the sheer joy of comics is the fact that they can help turn kids into more active and engaged readers. They also provide a model for young readers to explore and develop their own creativity.

But comics are no longer the mass medium they once were. Far fewer kids are exposed to them today, and many of the comics they find are intended for older readers. That’s where Kids Read Comics comes in!

Our Kids Read Comics Celebration is a totally free event that unites kids, teens, parents, teachers and librarians with professional artists and writers from the comics and animation fields. Our goal is to introduce kids to worlds of imagination while unlocking their creative impulses, and to serve that goal, the convention features:

hands-on workshops
panels and presentations for kids, families, and educators
a chance for kids to meet and chat with comics and animation professionals
the opportunity for kids to have their own art portfolios reviewed
KRC also works throughout the year to promote comics and creativity for kids and teens. We’re building a recommended reading list; gathering resources for parents, teachers and librarians; and organizing artists and writers who can bring presentations and workshops to libraries around the state of Michigan and beyond.

Kids Read Comics was founded by youth and teen librarian Edith Burney of Chelsea, cartoonist and educator Jerzy Drozd of Ann Arbor, comic shop owner Dan Merritt of Dearborn, and comic book writer Dan Mishkin of East Lansing. You can reach us at kidsreadcomics@gmail.com.
