RIP John Hurt [Jan. 28th, 2017|03:17 pm]

John Hurt was one of my favorite actors, and in my childhood view, the best storyteller ever.

“The Soldier and Death” directed by Jim Henson is probably still the coolest thing I’ve ever seen on television. But I love every episode. I could watch them every day. And a huge part of the appeal is John Hurts performance as The Storyteller. His narration is so engaging and comforting like a warm fire.

“If death needs a new friend, I cannot fight him.”
“But howsoever life smiles on us, the last laugh is reserved for death.”
-The Storyteller

You’re Such a Geek: A Guide for Teachers, Students, and Parents to Help Cope with Bullying. [Thursday, 10/6, from 12:30-1:30.]

Despite nerd culture being at the forefront of popular culture today, many young comic con lovers feel isolated in their school community. With bullying of young people on the basis of their interests being one of the most challenging problems to overcome, how can teachers, parents, and students confront these issues together and apart? In a forum-style panel which will focus primarily on addressing audience questions, experts in the field will try to shed some light on the darkness of bullying.

Library Networking Session [ 2:45 – 3:45pm Location: 1C03]

Talking about Science Comics and the popularity of Manga.
