How do comics help bring history to life? What do we learn about our contemporary selves as a result of the use of history in historical fiction and nonfiction books, and how does the format influence how one tells the story? How are comics used to engage students in developing social awareness? Cecil Castellucci (Soupy Leaves Home), Brigitte Findakly (Poppies of Iraq), Nathan Hale (Hazardous Tales), Jose Pimienta (The Leg), Nate Powell (March trilogy), Chris Schweizer (The Crogan Adventures), and Alison Wilgus (Flying Machines) join moderator Michael Ulrich (educator) for a dynamic discussion of the processes involved in creating characters that give a peek into the past and use politics and history to create nuanced sequential stories.
