Eastgate Authors: Graphic Novels are Life! Telling Your Own Story in a Graphic Novel with Dan Santat

July 30 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Join this year’s winner of the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature, Dan Santat, as he inspires tweens and teens to tell their own stories through graphic novels. His winning book, A First Time for Everything, is a graphic memoir based on his own awkward middle school years and the trip to Europe that changed his life.

Dan Santat began drawing as a young boy and although he first studied microbiology, he pursued his passion in illustration. He spent many hours as a child and teenager teaching himself to draw by copying illustrations from comic books until he developed the unique, recognizable style that we see today. His talk will inspire listeners to draw their own story as well as give them practical tips on the creation of graphic novels.

You will be able to ask questions during the presentation.  Tuesday, July 30, 2 p.m.
