"Adult Graphic Novels for Every Library" Rocks NJLA 2008
This past week at the New Jersey Library Association annual conference, I presented on a panel entitled "Adult Graphic Novels for Every Library." With me on the panel were my esteemed colleagues Tyler Rousseau, Laverne Mann and Karla Ivarson. We are all library professionals here in New Jersey and we have in common, amongst other things, a love of comics and graphic novels. So, we attempted to help our librarian friends attending the conference with their collection development needs by suggesting graphic novel titles that should form the basis for a collection designed for adults. I recommended Watchmen, Pride of Baghdad, Daredevil: Born Again and All-Star Superman, Vol. 1. It was a great pleasure and an honor to present with these friends.
