This program is in part with the 7th Annual Peninsula Libraries Comic Arts Fest.
John Patrick Green
John Patrick Green, is a human with the human job of making books about animals with human jobs, such as InvestiGators, Hippopotamister, and Kitten Construction Company. Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at how he started his comics career, and get a glimpse of his process of making his goofy graphic novel series InvestiGators and its new spin-off, Agents of S.U.I.T.!
"The Intersection of Art and Social Justice"- Combining storytelling, graphics and humor, Keef takes a deep dive into how he came to address social issues through his comics and how cartoons can save the world. Keith Knight, is the award-winning creator of several comic strips, including The K Chronicles, The Knight Life, and the socio-political single panel, (th)ink. His work and life serve as the inspiration for the Hulu comedy series, Woke, now streaming its second season.
