Between the Panels Graphic Novel Book Club 2018
Sequential art (graphic novels, comic books, manga, etc.) is a printed arrangement of art and speech balloons. Our Between the Panels Graphic Novel Book Club is a place where people can get together and talk about this unique form of literature. Not only will the discussion focus on the story but will address the art and format of the book as well.

Between the Panels Graphic Novel Book Club meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM.
