“Manga Otaku Creator’s Nights” are the new attraction at Calvert Library Twin Beaches Branch! In response to overwhelmingly enthusiastic requests at last December’s Creator’s Night, three more Manga Otaku Nights have been added to our 2015 schedule for February, March and April! Teen and tween otaku (i.e., fans of Japanese comics and anime) will develop the skills to draw and write their own comics! Artist and illustrator (and Calvert librarian) McNevin Hayes will guide you through the basics of story layout, thumbnails, character construction and other features of visual storytelling. Japanese style snacks will be provided. Attendance at previous events are not a requirement. You can come to any or all! And the cost? It’s free!
These events will run from 7 to 8:30 PM on three Tuesday this Winter— March 3rd, and April 7th. Come to as many or as few as you like. Be sure to register, though; space is limited! (You can register online, or by phone, or in person at your local library branch.) For more information visit calvertlibrary.info or call 410-257-2411.
