MARVEL AT THIS!

Calling all Comic Book, Manga, Graphic Novels, and Art fans!  A special event coming up at the City of Fairfax Regional Library will be of interest to you!  The Fairfax Bibiophiles have invited Norah Curry to come speak to their group on 10 March at 7:30 p.m.

Norah is the Promotions Director at Laughing Ogre Comics (laughingogrecomics.com), a family of three comic book stores.  She has a BA in Art History and History from the University of Iowa, and an MA in the History of Art and Architecture from the University of Pittsburgh.  She is a life-long comic book fan.

This program will discuss comic books, graphic novels and manga.  They will look at the differences and similarities between the three and how they were developed.  They also will discuss how they are all interconnected with each other and their continuing importance in the US and abroad.

Speaking of Comic Books, did you know that the Friends of Reston Regional Library have a huge supply for sale?  A couple of boxes were donated a while back. We're struggling with how to display them for sale. They are easily damaged, so we don't want to just put them out.  But, if you are a current Friend of Reston Library, and you'd like to review them for purchase, please e-mail us to make an appointment! If you want to review them and you're not a current Friend of Reston Library, e-mail us to arrange to purchase a membership and we'll schedule the appointment at the same time!
