Drop in at the Main Library’s Comic Book Café and share your thoughts about comics: creating them, reading them, collecting them. Tell us what your favorite comic is (and why). Bring your own creations, or listen to others talk about journaling through comics, or the history of comics, or the comic book industry. Learn about the growing collection of comics and graphic novels in the UI Libraries and some of the comics created by the Federal Government. Anyone who wishes can speak for up to five minutes about some aspect of comic books, but when the egg timer rings, your time is up.
