Graphic Novel Club will meet twice during the month of March. We will review the first half of the graphic novel on the 16th and the second half on the 30th. Participants can pick up their graphic novel to check out on the 2nd floor of the library, or via the library’s curbside pick-up service. Our graphic novel for the month is The Giver by Lois Lowry and adapted by P. Craig Russell. Books will be available to pick up beginning February 23rd. RSVP for this event above to receive the Zoom link via email!
Graphic Novel Description: The haunting story centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.
In this new graphic novel edition, the brilliant art of P. Craig Russell truly brings The Giver to life. Witness Jonas’s assignment as the Receiver of Memory, watch as he begins to understand the dark secrets behind his fragile community, and follow the explosion of color into his world like never before.
