Reading with Pictures at NYCC 2011
It’s official! Reading with Pictures takes the Big Apple in October at the New York Comic Con (NYCC).
Fellow contributor Steve Wallace and myself will be manning the RWP booth in small press, located at booth #2629 (below is a handy dandy little map; RWP is the orange square).
We’ll also have some events at the show, including:

12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
Speakers: Charlie LaGreca, Dr. Michael Bitz, Jessica Abel, Josh Elder, Matt Madden
Find out how YOU can help get comics into schools and get schools into comics in this informational seminar hosted by some of the biggest names in the world of comics and education. Join Josh Elder of Reading With Pictures, Dr. Michael Bitz of the Comic Book Project, Charlie LaGreca of Comic Book Classroom and Jessica Abel and Matt Madden of Drawing Words and Writing Pictures as they unveil their plans for 2012 and beyond.
Be sure to stop by the booth and see how you can help get comics into classrooms around the country! And also check out our first anthology, nominated for two Harvey Awards, featuring award-winning talent such as Jill Thompson, Raina Telgemeier, Josh Elder, Fred Van Lente, and many more!
Additionally, we’ll be doing signings with many of our creators throughout the weekend! The schedule will be announced before the show, but the table will be loaded with awesome comics that are both appropriate for all ages and educational in nature.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
