Join Danger Room Comics and the Olympia Timberland Library at this special afternoon event celebrating comics for kids! Kids, teens, and families will have the opportunity to meet cartoonists Ben Hatke (creator of Zita the Spacegirl, Julia’s House for Lost Creatures, and the brand new comic Little Robot) and Victoria Jamieson (creator of Roller Girl), hear them talk about their creative process, and get books signed. Frank Hussey of Danger Room Comics will present comics in Reader’s Theater format with audience participation. Kids: feel free to come dressed up as Zita the Spacegirl, Roller Girl, or your favorite comic book character! Books will be on sale courtesy Danger Room Comics. This is a special Sunday event — the library will only be open for this program, and no other library services will be available.
