Of Maus and Menschen: Jews and the Graphic Novel
On Sunday, December 2, 2012 from 10 am to noon, Or Emet, the Minnesota Congregation for Humanistic Judaism, and Or Emet member Natalie Rosinsky will discuss Jewish innovators in the genre of graphic novels and examine several examples that highlight aspects of Jewish life world-wide. Participants will leave this meeting knowing the titles and details of ten or more graphic novels that focus on Jewish life past and present.
The program is free and open to the public. It will be at 1365 Englewood Ave., St. Paul, near Hamline University (in the building of the Minnesota Friends School). Please enter north entrance by parking lot on N. Albert St.
Through discussion of selected pages and a short activity or two, we will touch upon what is involved in reading as well as creating graphic novels. Questions are always welcome!
