Registration for our fall session opens August 1st and closes September 1st. We will meet every Monday evening from 6-8 p.m. for 8 weeks. Books will be provided!
This Graphic Endeavors session will focus on Watchmen, considered by many to be the most influential graphic novel of the 20th century. Alan Moore's masterpiece blends the superhero genre with alternative reality in, as Time magazine wrote, "a work of ruthless psychological realism." Watchmen was named one of their all-time 100 best English language novels and is the recipient of both Hugo and Eisner Awards.
We hope you'll sign up!
