Library staff showcased our library's services during this comic book author event held at Kent State University, and some of our library teens cosplayed at the event. Teen Librarian Christina and Children's Librarian (and Marantz board member) Chris offered prizes to attendees (librarians, college students and teachers) who spun the Comics Character Wheel and correctly identified the comic/anime character. Authors and artists signed their books and talked with fans, and promoted their work.

Teen Author Fest

The library hosted four YA authors (one of whom is an accomplished comic strip artist as well) in an afternoon of literary love. Teens attended a writing workshop taught by one of our authors, Jody Casella, mingled with the authors, bought their books and got autographs, and a lucky 6 won raffle prizes of more autographed books. Everyone got to take home a free paperback book, too, courtesy of The Learned Owl Bookshop. The event was sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Teens were excited to be "in the room where it happened"! They competed in Hamilton musical and history trivia games, faced off in "lyric duels" (complete with Nerf guns!), sang Hamilton karaoke, and made Hamilton-themed bottlecap necklaces. Rise up!
