Have you ever browsed through the Anderson Public Library‘s extensive graphic novel collection? Wait…you want to know what a graphic novel is? You’re not alone–simply put, graphic novels are novels that are written with text and illustrations rather than simply words. They are NOT picture books! They are so much more than that–don’t believe me? Then come on down and see for yourself. We’ve even provided some comfy chairs for reading. See you there!
A big thank you goes out to Mrs. Wildman at North Side Middle School–she and her seventh graders invited me to their classes for booktalk mania! Here are the titles I brought:
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Swallowing Stones by Joyce McDonald
Vampirates by Justin Somper
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Thanks again to everyone! I had a great time, blizzard or not!
