SIGN UP NOW and help spread the word: the League of Graphic Novel Educators wants YOU!
Who can join? Currently, the League of Graphic Novel Educators is recruiting teachers, librarians, administrators, parents, and community leaders, and current CBLDF members who are interested in or are currently teaching students.
When should I join? When are League Book Clubs? Do I have to participate in all the meetings? You can join the League anytime and can opt to participate in whichever League Book Clubs interest you. Our League Book Club hosts virtual discussions on the 3rd Thursday of odd-numbered months: May, July, September, November, January, March. Discussions are held with Zoom and usually start at 4:30pm Pacific.
What graphic novels will you cover? What grade levels? We produce at least one graphic novel guide per month and our League Book Club studies a graphic novel every-other month. We select books based on member feedback, books that meet common themes and topics covered in classrooms, and books that earn recognition for the quality of their contribution to graphic novel literacy.
