Teen Boat live reading


Interested in hosting a drawing game show or reader’s theater? Here’s some fun stuff a graphic novel event can include.

AA Readers theater

A live comics reading involving lots of audience participation and silliness. Authors will perform chapters from their all-ages graphic novels with the illustrated panels projected onto a large screen for all to see, and volunteers from the audience chosen to play some of the characters.

Comics Quickfire

A series of improvised drawing challenges in the style of a race-against-the-clock game show. Kids will form teams to collaborate on comics based on suggestions from the audience. Everyone is encouraged to participate, even if they can only draw stick figures, or make creative quips! Each game infuses elements of story structure, set up, conflict, rising action, plot twists, and resolution.
