The NCTE Inbox
just keeps the stories coming when it comes to graphic novels. I gotta get those folks to let me know how they mine for these gems! This time it's a story from NPR
they're sharing, one about librarians using Comic-Con as a means to stock their shelves with new Manga titles! There's a 3-minute audio story to go along with it. They even pronounce Manga ("mahn-gah") rather than "mainga," which I even still have a tendency to do. And, there's mention of the library statistics about how Manga series attract female readers and increase circulation figures. It's a fun story, very tight, informative, and well-produced. Give it a read/listen.
