They just don't make comics like they used to - on purpose. Comics and graphic novels are just another example of things Generation X brought with them as they grew up, in a phenomenon called "rejuvenation". Why did this happen, and what are the consequences of it? How does this change how we learn and how we view the world around us today?
Our speaker is Alicia Holston, videographer and librarian extraordenaire. She is the resident videographer for Open Stage, a variety theater show of epic proportions put on every Monday in Richardson. She is the librarian for the Circus Freaks, a comic book geek, a promoter of liberty through literacy, and Chair of the Texas Maverick Graphic Novel List Committee. Often asked what super power she would have, Alicia wishes for the ability to stop or manipulate time so there are a few more hours in the day to get everything done and still read a good book.
Food and refreshments begin at 6:30pm, speaker begins at 7. Mingling and discussion will follow.
