The Deschutes Public Library system will host events related to comic books during March. Two comic artists will visit local libraries to talk about their art to audience members. The programs are aimed at ages 10 to adult and are free and open to the public.
Phil Yeah, known as the godfather of the American graphic novel and author of 90 books and comics, will appear in Redmond at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, and at the Downtown Bend Library at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Audience members will help create a comic strip.
Isaac Paris, who specializes in a Japanese comic story-telling form called kamishibai, will talk on March 27. His events will include improvisational drawing games; his style is known as “slam cartooning." The events will take place at the Downtown Bend Public Library at 2 p.m., and at the Redmond Public Library at 6:30 p.m.
