VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT
livewire.jpg
Valiant Entertainment is excited to announce that LIVEWIRE writer Vita Ayala will join the award-winning publisher at the 2019 American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference, to be held June 20-25 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Attendees will be able to find Ayala and Valiant representatives at the Diamond Books area, booth #3833.
The ALA Annual Conference is an annual gathering of publishers, authors, exhibitors, librarians, teachers, bookstore owners, and more to showcase new titles, products, and services. It is not open to the general public. Valiant will have sample single issues available to give away, plus Ayala will be on hand at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 22nd and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 23rd to sign copies of their title, LIVEWIRE.
Amanda McKee, a.k.a. Livewire, is a machine-controlling psiot (a human that has evolved, mind-based powers) trained by the Harbinger Foundation to be the next generation of leadership her people need. In her first solo comic book series, seeking to protect other vulnerable superpowered psiots like herself, Livewire plunged the United States into a nationwide blackout, causing untold devastation. With the whole world hunting her, what kind of hero will Livewire be…or will she be one at all? LIVEWIRE VOL. 1: FUGITIVE collects LIVEWIRE issues #1-4.
Vita Ayala will also take part in the following ALA panel on Friday, June 21st:
GNCRT Friday Discussion Forum – Social Justice and Comics
Art and Activism: The Rich History of Comics and Social Justice
Social justice in comics has a rich history and tradition that carries into the present.

This panel brings comics creators together to discuss their perspectives on using comics and graphic novels as a way to address social justice topics.
Friday, June 21st
Friday Forum full runtime: 11:00am – 3:00pm

Panels at the Graphic Novel and Gaming Stage:
European Comics: A Melting Pot
10:30 – 11:20am
European Comics: A Melting Pot Asterix, Tintin, The Smurfs and Persepolis are just some of the few that have made it across the Atlantic. But Europe’s comics heritage is much richer and varied, different in every country. As we stress on the importance of diversity and the need of different voices, Europe Comics presents a panel of award-winning European creators and their latest works. Including: Typex. Presented in coordination with EuropeComics.
Wordy to Wordless: How Comics Writers Adapt to Different Genres, Ages, and Artists
12:30 – 1:20pm
Comics scriptwriters creatively adapt their styles across publishers and partnerships, from realistic, to genres including crime/sci-fi/fantasy, to picturebooks, and even wordless narratives. What guides language choice, dialogue decisions, and pacing for comics writers depending on the age level and audience for a book? How do writers “write” a wordless script? How do they work in conversation with artists? A shop talk! Featuring: Amy Chu, Ezra Claytan Daniels, Julia Billet, and Wilfrid Lupano, moderated by Heidi MacDonald.
Panels at the Pop Top Stage:
Middle Grade Graphic Novels: New Titles for Growing Readers!
2 –2:50pm
Middle Grade is a huge growth category for graphic novel publishing, and these books are popular and flexible for younger library patrons—from eager elementary readers, who are growing out of picturebooks and ready to jump to sophisticated topics, to older reluctant readers who find the appealing style and comfort level bringing them back to books.  From historical fiction to fantasy, these creators will showcase a breadth of genres in this popular category! Featuring: Karim Friha, Julia Billet, and Emily Whitten, moderated by Betsy Bird.
Small Press Expo Meet-up at the French Comics Association booth!
3 – 4:30pm
Come learn about The Small Press Expo, headquartered in Bethesda, MD, and all they do for indie comics. Treats will be served and French comics will be signed…
Monday / June 24th
Graphic Novel and Comics Roundtable Programming:
Exploring Trauma and Recovery through Comics
9 am – 10:00am
Trauma is life-changing, from living through the explosive conflict of a war zone to recovering from personal ordeals. Eyewitness accounts are particularly well evoked in the constraints and freedoms of a graphic narrative. This panel will draw together creators who can speak from their first-hand knowledge of violence and the work that goes into expressing a traumatic event in comics. Attendees will learn about expressing strong emotion and experiences graphically, the difficulties of first-person narration and reportage, and receive suggestions for their collections. With Julia Billet.
At the Graphic Novel and Gaming Stage:
BioGraphics: Reading Graphic Novel Biographies
11:30 am – 12:20pm
The virtues of graphic biographies are now recognized. Having two visions of a famous person’s life in one, that of the biographer and of the artist, adds even more nuance and depth to a person’s life story. It might also happen that we pick up a biography we wouldn’t usually be interested in, thanks to the appealing art. A panel of award-winning graphic biographers will discuss and present their works. Featuring Typex.  Presented in coordination with EuropeComics.
ALA Event:
Meet-up with Pop Culture Classroom and French Comics Association!
11:30am  – 1pm
Details TBA
Educators, librarians, and anyone who wants to connect about comics and their academic potential are encouraged to RSVP for this ALA offsite meet-up with a “comics creator speed-dating” element. Coffee and treats will be served, and give-away comics will be available to participants!
