Graphic Novel Book Club: ALIAS
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

This month, join us for a look at the point where crime noir and superheroes meet: Marvel’s Alias, volumes 1 and 2, starring the popular Jessica Jones.  Before her hit Netflix show returns in March, catch up with the groundbreaking graphic series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos.  “Once upon a time, she was a costumed super hero — but not a very good one.  In a city of Marvels, she never found her niche. The self-destructive would-be Avenger is now the owner and sole employee of Alias Investigations — a small, private-investigative firm specializing in superhuman cases. When she uncovers the potentially explosive secret of one hero’s true identity, Jessica’s life immediately becomes expendable. But her wit, charm and intelligence just may help her survive another day.”  Explicit, funny, and unrelenting, Alias is a modern classic.  Closely related to comic books, graphic novels are a uniquely American mode of storytelling known for an incredible range of expression thanks to their union of words and pictures.  This group is intended for adults aged 18 or older.  No need to be a comic fan—give this unique medium a try!  Please call (315) 536-6114 or click below to register for this free event. (Be sure to talk to Alex at the library about reserving a copy of the book.)

SAVE THE DATE - Field Trip!

On this Field Trip!, we'll visit the Toy Library, and another innovative maker/doer/displayer library. We'll see what they're doing and what we can crib from them for our own libraries. Our last Field Trip! had a full bus, so I'll make sure to give everyone plenty of notice when the schedule is set so you can register for your spot and we make the most of our day.

The schedule will be set and registration will open February 1st!
