Exhibit Hall - Graphic Novel / Gaming Stage

Over the last ten years, more and more serious works of literature have been released as graphic novels. Come and listen to UK comic book publisher Ryan O'Sullivan (T Pub) talk about how stocking "literary comics" gets more people of all ages reading in your library. He will cover a range of topics, including:

• What genres / titles to stock to really bring in new readers.
• How comics can operate as a gateway into prose fiction and other traditional mediums.
• The difference between comics, manga and graphic novels.
• How book clubs are taking advantage of increased readership in comics.
• And how comics are more cost-effective than prose, in terms of circulation, when it comes to library lending.
