Calling all comics fans: Teen Services invites you to join us as we welcome back author and illustrator Mark Crilley! Mark will be talking about all of his books for tweens and teens, including the acclaimed Akikographic novels for tweens and the manga series Miki Falls for teens, which was recently chosen by Brad Pitt's film company to be made into a major feature film. The Comics Buyers Guide also called Miki Falls "a brilliant new series by one of comicdom's best storytellers." The series was awarded a spot on the Young Adult Library Services Association’s Great Graphic Novels for Teens list in 2007, and Akiko has been nominated for the Will Eisner Award over a dozen times since 1995! Come listen to Mark as he tells behind-the-scenes stories from his experiences as a writer and illustrator, provides tips for aspiring writers and artists in the audience, and shares information about writing and storytelling.
