NextReads Newsletter, August 2012

This month's NextReads graphic novels and comics newsletter is now available!  This month I've selected some young adult comics that adults should read too. Bonus: I'll soon be posting an interview with Autumn Winters, teen librarian at Durham County's Southwest Regional Library.  Watch this space!  It's up!  I've also started a new feature, suggestions on what to read if you're new to the medium.

Subscribe to this and other NextReads newsletters by visiting Durham County Library's NextReads page. Select the check boxes for the genres and subjects that interest you, then scroll to the bottom of the page to create your subscription account.  Enjoy!
