The Alt Lit Club Starts Soon!
If you like comics and manga and are interested in the many techniques artists employ to tell stories graphically, then this is the program for you!
How can you illustrate the passage of time? The movement of an object? The complex emotions of a fully-formed character? Graphic novel expert Susan Ma comes at these questions with a wealth of experience in the art form, as well as extensive knowledge of the latest and greatest on bookstore shelves. Membership in the club also comes with access to the Lyceum's extensive graphic novel collection, which students are encouraged to borrow from, and talk about.
Sundays 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Ages: 10 to 14
Dates: October 26; November 2, 16, 23, 30; December 7 (6 sessions)
Cost: $324.00 + GST

From Renaissance courts to Harry Houdini's many stages, Alaska's Aleutian Islands to the Mexico-United States border, staying home has never been more of an adventure.
