Great Stories Club: Deeper Than Our Skins

February 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

For this month’s meeting, we will be talking about the graphic novel The Shadow Hero by Gene Luen Yang with special attention to the illustrations. During this meeting, local artist Chris Siemasko will lead a cartooning workshop for the participants to create their own super heroes. What will the super hero look like? Who will he/she/they be defending, what special powers will they have?

The Pawling Library is honored to have been selected as one of 58 libraries nationwide to take part in the Great Stories Club, a reading and discussion program for underserved teens. These competitive grants are offered by the American Library Association (ALA) with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The Library has received two Great Stories Grants and is partnering with Camino al Éxito to bring teens age 13 & up a book discussion series in English & Spanish.
