Love talking about books? Join us for BEST 2020 – The Graphic Novel Edition, a celebration of children and teen graphic novel titles. Learn about the Black Eyed Susan Award and participate, via Zoom, in a half day of small group discussions of some of the 2020-2021 graphic novel nominees. Author and illustrator Robin Ha, creator of Almost American Girl, will be our keynote speaker. Paula Willey will tell us about some of the other graphic novel titles being published this year. Program check-in begins at 9:15 a.m., and the program will start at 9:30 a.m.
There will be two discussion groups, one for titles from the Grades 4-6 list and the other for titles from the Grades 6-12 list. Each group will meet twice so you can attend both.
