A couple things. 1. Just finished American Born Chinese. Pretty fun book. Very quick read. It was sent as part of.... 2. Some study materials for a two-day seminar that I'm about to attend about using graphic novels in the classroom. I think it's going to be amazing. They have a U of I professor who teaches a course in graphic novels coming to talk to us at the Newberry Library as part of their Teachers as Scholars program... additionally, they sent me a chapter from... 3. Scott McCloud's book Understanding Comics. It's pretty amazing... at least this chapter. I think it's chapter two. I've never looked at comics in such a philosophical manner. I bought the rest of the book. That's all! Oh... I've added a couple of graphic novels... well... are they considered graphic novels if they're memoirs? I guess so. Anyway... I added Maus I & II and Pedro and Me to a couple of English courses at my school.
