Today’s Critical Linking is sponsored by Flatiron Books and I’m Not Missing, the YA debut from Carrie Fountain.

Most of the talk here at the show among graphic novel supporting librarians was the proposal to start a Graphic Novel Roundtable. upgrading the current interest group to a full fledged mini organization within the ALA. I know this is esoteric library talk, so here’s the layperson’s version.

Hurray! Can’t wait to see how they proceed.
