Random House Graphic Announces “Falling For Graphic Novels” Virtual Events

You can’t go to a convention right now, so some folks are bringing the convention to you. Such is the case with Random House Graphic as the graphic novel imprint from Random House Children’s Books is partnering with indie bookstores for themed panels every week in September. “Falling for Graphic Novels” is a series of virtual events hosted by five indie bookstores across the US.

The panels will feature Random House Graphic creators. Attendees can discover and virtually visit the stores. Each panel will focus on a theme in kids and young adult comics from magic and heroes to queer and diverse representation and even an interactive art class. Check out the schedule below.
