This time we’re joined by Eric Orchard for a talk about his new kids’ horror comic Marrowbones. What are the special parameters one must consider when making a scary story for kids? How do you walk that line in a visual medium like comics? Also, a contest! For the folks who tuned in during the live stream at we gave away a free advance copy of Raina Telgemeier’s new book Drama (available for preorder now).

We’re once again joined by Sharon Iverson of the Ann Arbor District Library for some more book recommendations.
