  1. Hey Heidi, this Las Vegas/Clark County event is a bit of an evolution from the Suffolk County Graphic Novel Symposium. Andre Kaplan, who is the L I C librarian in charge, has opened the program up to include librarians, teachers, retailers and now, the civilian population. It will be interesting to see how well the mix goes. It’s great that the publishers continue to support programs like this. I’ll take photos and shoot you a recap.
