Gareth Hinds - Exclusive program
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

A hands-on workshop in creating comics, including tips and techniques for idea generation, character design, pacing, page and panel composition, plus direct feedback from a professional to help everyone from the complete beginner to the serious cartoonist "level up".

There is a limit of 15.

Gareth Hinds is the creator of critically-acclaimed graphic novels based on literary classics, including Beowulf (which Publisher’s Weekly called a “mixed-media gem”), King Lear (which Booklist named one of the top 10 graphic novels for teens), The Merchant of Venice (which Kirkus called “the standard that all others will strive to meet” for Shakespeare adaptation), The Odyssey (which garnered four starred reviews and a spot on ten "best of 2010" lists), Romeo and Juliet (which Kirkus called "spellbinding"), and Macbeth (which the New York Times called "stellar" and "a remarkably faithful rendering"). Gareth is a recipient of the Boston Public Library’s “Literary Lights for Children” award. His books can be found in bookstores and English classrooms across the country, and his illustrations have appeared in such diverse venues as the Society of Illustrators, the New York Historical Society, and over a dozen published video games.

Made possible by funds from a grant by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by  the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

Downsizing Your Stuff
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

We all have STUFF! Why do we acquire and save more possessions than we need? What happens when our stuff starts to own us? Why can’t we just throw things away?

With his upbeat and unique approach, Dave Downs explores the many reasons that our drawers, closets and garages get filled with STUFF. Downs offers helpful hints for managing this difficult problem. Dave uses colorful stories throughout the talk to engage as well as inform the audience. You may recognize a part of yourself in these stories.

Participants will leave knowing that if we are thoughtful about what we acquire; what we keep and what we discard, we will start to reverse the tendency to bury ourselves in “treasures!”
