Comics About You

Children’s author and illustrator Katie Davis will be visiting two of the Island libraries in the week ahead, leading a free program in which kids will be encouraged to work on journal entries in the comic book format which the author calls “autobiogra-strips.”

In Ms. Davis’s novel for middle-grade readers, The Curse of Addy McMahon, the title character keeps her diary in comic-strip format.

Using this story as her jumping-off point, the author will work with children in free programs at the Edgartown library at 3 p.m. Tuesday, July 15, and at the Vineyard Haven library at 3 p.m. Thursday, July 17. She will read from her books, and will lead a workshop with children. Materials will be provided.
