Coming Events: Graphic Novel Chinwag & Persepolis

The Graphix exhibit will be ending soon & next week, we're having a blow out. On Monday, January 31st, at 7:00 pm in the Jaffe Center, English Professor Eric Berlatsky & JCBA student assistants Jonas McCaffery & Ashley Miller will hold a panel for an informal discussion on graphic novels. Each will bring their own personal expertise to the table to bring up issues & insight on the comic book medium. Prof. Berlatsky teaches the occasional graphic novel class at FAU, Ms. Miller has 10 years of cartooning experience & Mr. McCaffery was the curator of the Graphix exhibit. So, bring your thoughts & questions to the event to help create a lively conversation or you can post your own discussion questions on the blog & we'll make sure that they are brought up.

On Wednesday & Thursday, February 2nd & 3rd, at 3 pm & 7 pm, we will be screening Persepolis, a film by Marjane Satrapi & Vincent Paronnaud. The Golden Globe winning film for Best Foreign Film will be the perfect going out piece for anyone who loves movies, comic books or animation (so, almost everyone.) The film is 95 minutes long & is in French with English subtitles. To read more about the film, click on the link for my Two View Movie Review of the film . Come experience this enthralling, powerful & effective gem.
