Adult Summer Reading

Join us at Patterson Library this summer as we explore visual storytelling.

How do wordless picture books tell a story? Why do we love graphic novels? What is “manga” and “anime,” anyway?

Let’s play, draw, read, and tell some stories together this summer #atthepat!

Reading Program

Adult Summer Reading will be a Book Bingo card to complete at your own pace between July 5th and August 12th.
