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 March 9 meeting, we'll discuss New Kid by Jerry Craft. 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!

"Seventh grader Jordan Banks loves nothing more than drawing cartoons about his life. But instead of sending him to the art school of his dreams, his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school known for its academics, where Jordan is one of the few kids of color in his entire grade. As he makes the daily trip from his Washington Heights apartment to the upscale Riverdale Academy Day School, Jordan soon finds himself torn between two worlds-and not really fitting into either one. Can Jordan learn to navigate his new school culture while keeping his neighborhood friends and staying true to himself?"
