D+Q is exhibiting at the ALA Annual Conference and Exhibit for the very first time! Find us at booth # 2263 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlanda, Florida! We'll be hosting giveaways from the booth and via social media, as well as participating in programming.
Drawn & Quarterly will be speaking on two panels at the Graphic Novel and Gaming Stage (mid-aisle 400, near booths 424 and 426):
"The Best Graphic Novels You Haven't Heard of (Yet)" - Sunday June 26th from 2:30 to 3:20 pm
Drawn & Quarterly, Groundwood Books, and Nobrow Press are three international publishing houses producing landmark graphic novels with impressive production values. D+Q publisher Peggy Burns, Groundwood publisher Sheila Barry, and Nobrow US Sales & Marketing Director Tucker Stone will discuss their approach to graphic novels, preview their forthcoming titles, and share what's in the pipeline for 2017.
"The State of Graphic Novels Today" - Monday June 27th from 9:30 am to 10:20 am
Drawn & Quarterly has been publishing luminaries of the graphic novel medium for over 25 years. Comics and graphic novels make great entry points for low literacy users as well as readers of all stripes, and the fastpaced world of graphic novels is booming. Join D+Q publisher Peggy Burns and executive editor Tom Devlin for a rousing discussion on the state of graphic novels today.
