Librarians share their compiled knowledge on the best new and classic graphic novel and manga titles that are essential for any library's young adult collection. They will be discussing current trends in graphic novel publishing as it relates to greater diversity within the genre as well as discuss how to utilize individual comic book issues and webcomic selections in your collection. They will cover how to use graphic novels and manga as a way of supporting Common Core curriculum and as a method of encouraging hi-lo readers. They will also have a segment on crossover appeal: how to get your comic book reading patrons to like manga and vice versa. They'll conclude with some of their most anticipated graphic novels, comics, and manga for the rest of 2017 and the start of 2018. With panelists Loren Spector (young adult librarian III, Memorial Library), Marissa Thompson (young adult librarian, North Hollywood Library), Jennifer Siron (young adult librarian, Chatsworth Library), Danica Sheridan (young adult librarian, Silver Lake Library), Angela Ocana (Santa Clara City Library), Kelly Quinn Chiu (Santa Clara City Library), and Steven Torres-Roman (San Diego Public Library).
