Program Description

Event Details

Join us for the introductory meeting of the Adult Graphic Novel Club. This is an adult focused group to discuss graphic novels and manga.  Each month we will focus discussion on a standalone book or series.  Copies of the items will be available at the circulation desk. Come with your ideas, experiences, opinions, and an open mind as we explore this amazing world of visual realism and fantasy.

This group will meet each month on the first Tuesday evening of the month at 7pm.  This group will meet in a hybrid format with the host in the Brown Room at the library, and participants can join in person or Zoom in.  

Joshua Halsband teaches English composition, literature, and ESL for a variety of colleges from Boston to New Rochelle in-person, online, and hybrid.  He has been teaching since 1987 in the US, Spain, the former Soviet Union, and for 12 years in Japan.  An avid reader and writer, he recently became enthusiastic about graphic novels based on books, original graphic novels, manga, manhwa, comics, and anime. He says that his sudden interest in this medium came about because he was teaching ESL to teens and adults, and literature to native English speakers, who are not comfortable reading, and he had to devise a way to get them to become readers.  What started out as a classroom tool has become one of his newest passions.   Joshua hopes that readers of all levels of interaction with this media will join our new group.  From never-before readers to readers with years of insights into graphic novels, Joshua welcomes everyone.
