Lots of literate stuff going on in LA, this weekend, including the West Hollywood Book Fair on Sunday, but on Saturday, there’s another worthy event taking place, with Mark Waid, Kazu Kibuishi and many more:

September 29th the Los Angeles Public Library’s Art Department is proud to present The Future of Graphic Literature at the Central Library in Downtown Los Angeles. Hosted by Joshua Hale Fialkov (Elk’s Run, Punks, Vampirella), the panel will be a meeting of the minds amongst some of L.A.’s most diverse talent. Acclaimed comics scribe Mark Waid will join the group, including Kazu Kibuishi (Flight), Christos Gage (Stormwatch:PHD, World War Hulk:X-Men, Law and Order:SVU), Ross Richie (Boom! Studios), and Tony Fleecs (In My Lifetime, Postcards).

The discussion will be Q+A style, discussing how comics have changed and evolved over the past decade from specialty shop niche product to something that’s being widely embraced by Librarians, Book Publishers, and Hollywood.

The event will be held at the Los Angeles Public Library’s Central Library, in the Mark Taper Auditorium on Saturday September 29th at 2:00 pm. There will be a meet and greet style book signing after the program. There is convenient $1 parking with validation on Saturdays underneath the Library, entrance at 524 South Flower.
