Join us at the Blair-Taylor Elementary gym on Friday, August 14th at 10 a.m. for a wrap-up event for our 2015 Summer Reading Program “Every Hero Has A Story.” We will have a FREE program called “The History of Superheroes” presented by superhero expert Terry Fisk.
“History of Comic Book Superheroes”
Terry Fisk talks about the artists and writers who created such well-known superheroes as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, etc., and reveals the influences and inspiration for these powerful characters. He examines the history of comic books, and the impact they’ve had on our culture. Beginning at age 13, Fisk drew “Albert,” a weekly comic strip for his local newspaper, and later studied to be a comic book artist at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (the alma mater of Superman artist, Dan Jurgens). As a comic book aficionado, he owns a huge collection of comics, has met many of the artists and writers, and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the subject.
This program is free and open to the public. Your child does not need to participate in summer school to attend this event, so please join us for this awesome and informative program!
