gritLIT Spotlight Three-Event Series

Drawn Into the Story (Saturday, April 13 at 12:50 pm)

In 2018, for the first time ever, the prestigious Man Booker Prize longlist included a graphic novel. Much more than just grown-up comic books, graphic novels approach complex subjects and themes with narrative precision. Vivek Shraya & Ness Lee (Death Threat) and Kat Verhoeven (Meat and Bone) discuss the graphic novel and the unique challenges of putting words and pictures together. Hosted by Joe Ollmann
