Artist Alley interviews
Graphic novels have had a spot at ALA’s Annual Conference for several years, and comic-related events have been growing in popularity. This year, they’ve grown into GraphiCon, a mini-conference that includes the Gaming and Graphic Novel pavilions, the graphic novel stage with a full weekend of programming, the ALA Play event, and Artist Alley, where attendees could meet their favorite authors and illustrators face to face. Jessica Lee, Jack Baur, and Kat Kan have been interviewing many of the artists who appeared in Artist Alley, including Cecil Castellucci and Keith Knight, above, about their work and the place that graphic novels have in libraries. Watch the full (and still growing) playlist of Artist Alley interviews on YouTube.
