KRC Kickoff with Ben Hatke 11 a.m. this Saturday

Saturday, June 22 | 11:00 a.m.-Noon | Downtown Library – Multipurpose Room

Special guests at Kids Read Comics (KRC) are Ben Hatke, creator of fan-favorite Zita of Zita the Spacegirl, and 10-year-old cartoonist Angelica Hatke! And this is your chance to make comics with them!

Ben will be leading our annual kickoff event Saturday, June 22, at 11 am. During this interactive talk Ben will walk through his process of making comics and share how to create characters readers care about, worlds that readers believe in, and dangers that set readers on the edge of their seats!

Then he and Angelica will lead two workshops over the course of the weekend where he’ll share the 3 secrets to making great comics! These sessions will start with an interactive talk, after which Ben will work with you to create a short comics story of your own.

The sessions will run Saturday and Sunday, 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm in the Multi-Purpose room at the Downtown Library. To see the full weekend of programming check out the program brochure!



Yay! I am definitely going. :)

Now I just need to make my mom bring me to this event.

Then I hope to see you there.

I will go to KRC.

I have to go!!! Hopefully I'll see you all there!

I hope I can go.

I have to meet you in person.



Wow. Super coalition...

Do you need to sign up for the workshops?

You5, there is no need to sign up for any of the Kids Read Comics workshops. When you arrive pick up a program booklet at the Welcome Table just inside the library's entrance. If you need help finding the workshops, there will be lots of volunteers who can help. Just ask. See you there! k.c.

I want to go!

For the artist codes, there will be only one per artist, right? Not a code on Saturday and then a separate code on Sunday?

Hopefully not, I'm only going on Saturday...

Two codes per artist would be so much points... They would literally be giving away thousands of points.

Morgsush, you are correct. One game code per artist for the entire KRC event.

I just found out I'm going to KRC on Sunday... maybe I'll see Jessica...

I could only go on Sunday... makes me sad because that means I can only get a few of the badges :(

You get less codes if you go on Sunday?!?!?!

Yeah, some of the authors aren't there on sunday.

Even if you can only go Sunday you will still amass thousands of points.

it was excellent! Thank you AADL

Yes, at least 4500 if you see the authors and go to some events.

Comics! Love 'em
