Zap! Bam! Kerplow! Making an impact with graphic novels

10th July 2007
The Lighthouse, Wolverhampton

•	What exactly is a graphic novel?
•	Should my library stock graphic novels?
•	How do you go about building a graphic novels collection for young people?
•	How can I use graphic novels to encourage boys to read?
•	What activities can I run for graphic novel enthusiasts in my library?
•	How can I promote graphic novels effectively?

If you’re interested in these and other questions about graphic novels for 
young people in libraries, Evidence Base is organising a one-day event in 
Wolverhampton on 10th July.  Children’s young people’s librarians, school 
librarians, SLS staff and anyone else with an interest in providing, 
promoting and using graphic novels for young people in libraries are all 
welcome.

The day will be led by Mel Gibson, who has run training and promotional 
events about visual literacy in relation to picture books, comics and 
graphic novels since 1993.  She has also worked as a children’s librarian, 
lecturer and literacy consultant and is now a lecturer specialising in 
childhood, children’s books and media at the University of Northumbria.

Other contributors will be:
•	Angela Robinson, Literacy Development Officer – Projects with Blackburn 
with Darwen Borough Council who has run a number of successful promotional 
events such as talks, comic strip drawing activities and an annual 'Free 
Comic Book Day'.
•	Tina Campbell, Libraries Without Walls link worker from Wolverhampton, who 
was involved in Wolverhampton’s graphic novels project in 2006, when 
teenagers from Parkfield High School worked with storyteller, graphic 
novelist and illustrator, Fran O'Boyle, to design and create their own 
graphic novel comic.
