Graphic novels are a burgeoning genre, and the topics and themes presented in them bring a fresh insight into the lived experiences of others. Our BC librarian, Elena Maans, and Political Science faculty, Cliff Cawthon, are curating a selection of graphic novels for us to read and discuss in this unique book club designed to build our understanding of equity and intersectionality.
Over the quarter, book club participants will read 4 graphic novels either self-chosen or recommended by Elena and Cliff. Discussions will focus on sharing the plot, themes, graphic styles, and identifies portrayed in the book, in addition to the reader reflecting on their own identities and what they learned about the identities in the book. The goal is for participants to think about how our students and co-workers have lived different lives than ours and how can we support our fellow human beings.
