Tacoma Literati go Graphic

If you are in Tacoma, or within driving distance, you have the chance to participate in discussions of the Next Big Thing: the graphic novel. Our treasured local resource, King’s Books, is hosting a series of discussions on some of the finer graphic novels out there. Sadly, they have already covered Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home, a huge favorite of mine and a staple of several English department syllabi.

To follow up on the previous post, one of Puget Sound’s distinguished speakers this past year was graphic artist Scott McCloud, clear evidence that your dedicated English Department remains on the cutting edge of literary trends and topics, while retaining our focus on the tried and true.

Next meeting of the Graphic Novel Discussion Club is July 6, 7 p.m., at 1022 S. J St., to discuss Gene Luen Yang’s American Born Chinese, a work that has appeared on both Professor Mahato’s and Professor Nimura’s Puget Sound syllabi.
