OK, we are a little late with this one, but isn’t it always a good time to celebrate women’s history? The staff in Library Technology services has curated a great list of media supporting Women’s History Month. All items are on display on the 4th floor.
Author Gene Luen Yang will serve as Honorary Chair of National Library Week (April 10-16). Gene is a graphic novelist who was recognized by the Library of Congress as the 2016-2017 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. His books often look at themes such as acceptance and culture from a young person’s perspective. His first graphic novel, American Born Chinese, about a boy struggling to fit into a new school, was the first graphic novel to be a finalist for the national book award.
Many of Gene’s books, and other graphic novels and books about comics are on display at Booth in the 3000 corridor. Check them out below!
