”Kids’ Comics Revolution is go!Dave Roman and Jerzy Drozd have teamed up to create a series of audio shows connecting the worlds of comics, graphic novels, and kid lit. The series will feature interviews with and contributions by the people who help make the kids’ visual storytelling landscape a better place for all involved.
We wanted our inaugural episode to have a celebratory feel, so we sat down with Raina Telgemeier (Smile, The Baby-Sitters Club, and the soon-to-be-released Drama) for a talk on creating book release parties. After discussing the benefits of creating such an event, Raina instructs us in where to begin when creating your own event. How do you find a venue? Who pays for the promotional materials and food? What kinds of unique items/activities can you add to your event to make it wholly unique?”
