Best Graphic Novels of 2011
Books in graphic format are becoming a more prevalent part of school library collections. All kinds of readers love these books. Next year, we may even see a graphic novel win the Bluebonnet award! This is definitely an area of literature for children and young adults that we need to pay attention to.
Yesterday, Library Services hosted the ABC-CLIO/Linworth webinar on graphic novels. The presenter was Michele Gorman, "Getting Graphic" columnist for Library Media Connection. Michele shared her picks for the best graphic novels of 2011. If you missed the session, you can download the handout here. It includes my notes from the session and curriculum connections for some of the titles listed. Enjoy!
