LibCon: Chandler library celebrates anime, manga, sci-fi and gaming April 23

Old School RPGs - Available Now @ DriveThruRPG.com

KairosChandler’s library is planning a comic-book, gaming and sci-fi convention for teens later this month.

Called LibCon, the free event will be 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 23 at the Chandler Senior Center, 202 E. Boston St. The venue is adjacent to the downtown library.

Local author and illustrator Kofi O. Okyere will discuss his new graphic novel, Cry of the Forsaken, the first part in his Kairos series. The co-creators of superhero team The Parallels, Bryan Graham and Hannah Friederichs, will also attend.

There will also be a fashion show and costume contest, vendors, giveaways and more.

The Saturday mini-con is the brainchild of library assistant Elisia Simmons, who is trying to use formats like anime and manga as well as genres that teens enjoy to promote reading. “Teens love all this stuff, because it allows them to express their creativity, and it can be a fun social activity,” she said in a news release. “These movies, books and games also encourage literacy, and that is why Chandler Library is excited to produce this event.”

For more information, head to Chandler’s website where you can register (it’s free, but registration is required and you should bring money for drinks and snacks) or www.facebook.com/libcon. You can also follow LibCon on Twitter: http://twitter.com/LibConCPL.
