Kids Read Comics 2010 is over, but the updates have just begun!

So I’m recovering from the wild ride that was Kids Read Comics 2010. My deepest, most heartfelt thanks to my fellow co-organizers, the Dearborn Public Library staff and volunteers, and the guests who trekked from around the world to be a part of this event. I think we wound up doing a good thing this past weekend, and it couldn’t have happened without all of their support and enthusiasm.

A lot of audio and video was recorded during the event, and some of it is starting to trickle onto the web. Wanted to share some of it here.

First up, an AudioBoo I recorded with Ryan Estrada after the event’s closing. It beautifully sums up what Kids Read Comics is all about. You can check out Art & Story 136 to listen to all of the AudioBoos that I recorded over the weekend.

Photos of the event can be found here. See the cool cartoonist guests we had and the fantastic workshops they put on for us!

Kurt Sasso of the TGT Webcomics Podcast interviewed virtually everyone who came. The TGT guys are posting new video interviews every day on their website.

My good buddy and A&S co-host Krishna Sadasivam posted a KRC wrap-up on his PC Weenies site.

I’m also putting together some KRC podcasts of audio recorded at the event. I’ve recently posted the panel discussion I moderated with three Ann Arbor District Library staff entitled “Comics Programming in Libraries“. More will be posted soon. You can subscribe to the podcasts here.
