Since 2011, Patrick Holt has served as a co-organizer of the Durham Comics Fest, Durham County Library’s annual celebration of comics readers and creators. In those nine years, the event has won awards, attracted 500+ annual attendees, and brought nationally-recognized cartoonists like Raina Telgemeier, Keith Knight, Nate Powell, Jen Wang, and Liz Prince to Durham. The event also runs parallel with other undertakings like publishing comics anthologies, creating a directory of NC-based cartoonists for library connections, and cultivating a community of new and experienced comics-makers of all ages living in the Triangle. Come see what makes Durham Comics Fest and its spinoff projects special, and how you can use those ideas to highlight comics in your library community.

A printer friendly version of the poster and the "Guide to Stealing Our Ideas" handout have been added here for you to download! If you have questions or would like files for any of the other handouts, please email me at pdholt@dconc.gov!
