By now you have probably heard plenty of anecdotal evidence about how a strong graphic-novel collection can draw in hordes of readers to your library and encourage independent reading. But, being the hard-numbers-driven type that you are, you might be looking for a little proof. In this hour-long webinar, sponsored by Top Shelf Productions, ABDO Publishing Group, and SLG Publishing, Booklist associate editor Ian Chipman is joined by Christian Zabriskie, Assistant Coordinator of Young-Adult Services at Queens Library, whose research will open your eyes to the true potential for graphic novels, both for adults and youth, to spike those circulation numbers through the roof. And with looks at exciting new titles from our three sponsors, this is an event you can’t afford to miss.
