Matthew Holm at Emerald City Comicon!

Hi gang! Spring is in the air, so I wanted to come out of my blog-hibernation here to let you know that I will be appearing (as if by magic! no, not really...) at EMERALD CITY COMICON in Seattle, Wash., this SATURDAY, MARCH 2.

I'll be taking part in two events:

RAISING A READER

Room: ECCC KIDS! - ROOM 201
Start: 12:00PM
End: 12:55PM

CBLDF Presents: Newbery Award winning Children's book author and graphic novelist Jenni Holm discusses ways to get children excited about reading, encouraging creativity, and cultivating a love of literature and art, with a focus on great graphic novels and comics for younger readers.

COMICS QUICKFIRE

Room: ECCC KIDS! - ROOM 201
Start: 3:00PM
End: 3:55PM

Comics Quickfire! A fast-paced game show where volunteers are paired off with (or against) professional cartoonists in a series of fun-filled drawing challenges! Audience members will provide suggestions and add to the creation of totally improvised epic drawings! Featuring host Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy), Raina Telgemeier (Smile), Skottie Young (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz), Katie Cook (My Little Pony), John Green (Teen Boat), & more! Great for all ages!

Come join us! I'll be chit-chatting with other panelists on the best ways to get kids excited about reading (via comics, naturally) at the first one, and doing "color commentary" during the second event.

See you there!
