Program Description

Event Details

Kids ages 8 to 12: join us for Graphic Novel Club, presented online by the West Wyandotte Library! We will meet virtually each month to discuss a graphic novel together, accompanied by games and activities. We'll be reading both older favorites and brand new graphic novels, and you'll get to help decide each month's book selection! Ready to get started? Register today!

For our July 13 meeting, we'll discuss El Deafo by Cece Bell. A summary is below. Click here to place a copy on hold for pickup at the library, or click here to read the book online with Hoopla!

"The Phonic Ear gives Cece the ability to hear-sometimes things she shouldn't-but also isolates her from her classmates. She really just wants to fit in and find a true friend, someone who appreciates her as she is. After some trouble, she is finally able to harness the power of the Phonic Ear and become "El Deafo, Listener for All." And more importantly, declare a place for herself in the world and find the friend she's longed for."
