Discover the rich, diverse history of Graphic Memoir!  Attendees will take away knowledge of the genre’s elements as well as Take & Make exercises and resources to explore the craft further.  Program will be guided by MN Writer/Artist Lynn Von Sien, recipient of Arrowhead Regional Arts Council (2021) and Minnesota State Arts Board (2023) grants supporting her work in graphic memoir.  

This free hour-long program is geared towards patrons ages 12 and up.  If you can’t make the program, no worries!  Extra Take & Make exercises will be available at all ALS member public libraries, the ALS Bookmobile, and Mail-A-Book (if patrons qualify for service), so folks who aren’t able to attend the in-person program can learn more about graphic memoir outside of the library.

Lynn Von Sien is a fiscal year 2023 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.  This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, is funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACFH) and is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
