Reading in Color: Expanding Representation Through Graphic Novels
Presented on February 19th, 2020 as a part of Ithaca Loves Teachers Week, we presented on how teachers can use graphic novels in their classrooms to expand representation.
Watch our discussion of Rock and Riot by Chelsey Furedi ! We'll talk about what we liked, what we didn't, and how things like representation, happy endings, and similarities to Grease can make or break a story!
Grab your popcorn and join us, and if you want to read the comic first, you can find it here: Rock and Riot Comic
On October 13, 2019, we hosted a Reading Party at Comics for Collectors. We built a cozy space for reading, had various crafts, gift bags, and a bake sale where all funds were donated to the Berkshire Free Library
