Warning: Graphic Content

March will see the start of a new adult book discussion group. Graphic Content will meet every other month to discuss a selection from the library's collection of graphic novels. Graphic novels are increasingly popular at Carnegie-Stout and at libraries across the country. I hope that over the months we'll get the chance to sample a variety of titles from this diverse genre and please fans of indy comics, manga, superheroes, and everything in between.

With renovations causing a space crunch at the library we're pleased to announce that Comic World has offered us a meeting space.

For our March meeting we'll be discussing Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon's Watchmen. First released as a twelve issue mini-series from 1986 to 1987, this is a truly classic superhero story. The book tells the story of a small group of costumed heroes trying to accomplish something noble in an all too real world of fear, politics, and moral ambiguity.

The discussion starts at 6:30 p.m. and runs until Comic Wold kicks us out. Copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk a month before the meeting.
