Comic Books Are Not Just For Kids Anymore!

Smile Graphic Novel.jpgIf you're over the age of 18 and enjoy reading comic books and graphic novels from publishers like Vertigo and Fantagraphics, come to a meeting of Not Just for Kids Anymore, The Washington Park Comic Book & Graphic Novel Book Club.

This month's selection is Smile by Raina Telgemeier.
Raina just wants to be a normal sixth grader. But one night after Girl Scouts she trips and falls, severely injuring her two front teeth. What follows is a long and frustrating journey with on-again, off-again braces, surgery, embarrassing headgear, and even a retainer with fake teeth attached. And on top of all that, there's still more to deal with: a major earthquake, boy confusion, and friends who turn out to be not-so-friendly.

If this sounds appealing, come try out MPL's adult book club dedicated to graphic novels.
