Join us in an ongoing celebration promoting graphic novel literacy, free speech awareness, and the legacy of Will Eisner.
The second annual celebration of Will Eisner's contribution to comics and American
culture and is offered as a springboard to advance education of comics
and graphic novels in all communities around the world.
This year's theme is The Reading Revolution: Will Eisner and the American Graphic Novel.
events are currently being planned during Will Eisner Week including
venues at The Minneapolis College of Art & Design, The Savannah
Art and Design, and by the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund in New York
City. If your organization is interested in participating or receiving
information please e-mail the website administrator or post in the
Forum under the Will Eisner Week topic.
In addition to events, a variety of academic papers and group activity assignments are being generously donated by comic educators and will be available on the Will Eisner Week website. Our wish is that these materials will you to have your own event in your community. Ideas include events held at schools, libraries, and book groups.
