Comics and Networking

Comic–Con International is teaming up with the San Diego Public Library (SDPL) to discover ways comics can play a role in education and literacy. This San Diego Public Library event will be attended by members of SCIL. We encourage you to join us on July 20th in attending the Comic Conference for Educators and Librarians: Library Panels.

Registration for the July 20th Library Panels is free, but seats are limited. For registration information visit the Comic Conference for Educators and Librarians.

After the event, SCIL will be hosting an informal discussion and networking mixer at Half Door Brewing Co., a gastropub only four minutes away on foot from SDPL. Our mixer will start at 6:15pm and continue until we've run out of inspiration! Space is limited at Half Door, so please be sure to RSVP with SCIL Outreach Coordinator, Jordon Andrade (
