As requested by popular demand; a Stuck for Books special on graphic novels!

Graphic novels have seen a massive rise in popularity among young readers. Whether it is the increase in quality, variety or availability – one thing is for sure children cannot get enough of them! In a hectic world where attention spans are shortening, graphic novels are a great way to keep children reading, improve visual literacy and spark the interest of reluctant readers. 

If you are stuck for inspiration of what to recommend to young readers beyond Dog Man – fear not, there are plenty of great options to choose from for all interest levels. In this talk, Ruth will highlight some fantastic graphic novels for readers from 8-14 years. 

Covering graphic novels, comics and illustrated stories, this talk is aimed at helping parents, librarians, teachers, booksellers and bookworms grow their confidence when it comes to matching young readers with the right graphic novel for them. 

With lots of time for questions or specific recommendations, all participants will receive a full book list of all the recommendations made during the talk and any other resources mentioned. 

Taking place on Thursday the 9th of February from 7:30-8:30pm places are limited and unfortunately this talk will not be recorded. To avoid disappointment, book your tickets now!
