Texas Book Festival

This coming weekend, I am moderating a panel at the Texas Book Festival.

The Texas Comics Scene
Sunday, November 4, 2007
Time: 12:30 – 1:30
Capitol Extension Room E2.010

We’ve asked four of the state’s hottest graphic novelists and comics creators – both writers and illustrators – to talk about their latest works and what’s going on in the Texas comics scene. Come hear how Texas is influencing the comics world.

Matthew Sturges
Terry Moore
Lea Hernandez
Paul Benjamin
Moderated By: Rick Klaw

If you’ve never attended a Texas Book Festival, you’re missing out on a fun outing. Come check it out the wide array of authors including Sherman Alexie, Michael Connelly, Elmer Kelton, Joe R. Lansdale, Alan Cheuse and Jane Hamilton. While you are there be sure to drop my panel and say howdy.

    Hey Rick–do you think an 8, almost 9 yr old (my godson) who wants to be a writer-illsustrator would get anything out of the panel, or be bored?

  2. says

    Not sure. I think at the very least, he’d enjoy hearing from people who have actually made comics. This group should be entertaining. Besides, Paul Benjamin currently writes the all-ages Marvel Adventures Hulk, which should count for something to a 9 yr old. If nothing else, you could bring a copy of the comic for Paul to sign. I imagine your godson would enjoy meeting him.
