Comics Confidential: Thirteen Graphic Novelists Talk Story, Craft, and Life Outside the Box
compiled and edited by Leonard S. Marcus
J  741.5  MAR

"Respected anthologist Leonard S. Marcus turns his literary microscope to the world of comics, which has lately morphed and matured at a furious pace. Powerful influences from manga to the movies to underground comix have influenced the thirteen artists and writers interviewed in these pages to create their own word-and-picture narratives. Here are their moving, funny, inspirational stories: true tales from the crucible of creative struggles that led each to become a master of one of today’s most vibrant art forms. The book also contains an original graphic short on the common theme of “the city" from each of the artists, a mini-comic set in a cityscape of their choosing—present-day, historical, or imaginary."

Meet Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat in person at A Curious Christmas on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.  They are getting ready for George's first Christmas. George needs to learn about Christmas cards, tree decorating, gift giving, Christmas music and all the holiday fun. What will we do to help George get in the Christmas spirit? Make a Curious George Christmas ornament.  Create a special holiday card using your finger prints.  Help load Santa's sleigh with bananas (a monkey's favorite present).  Give George a hug or high five, and he'll give you a Christmas gift.  Also, enjoy Christmas songs and holiday snacks selected by the curious monkey himself.
