Carmichael’s Kids presents bestselling graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang
Main Library, Tuesday, March 17, 2020, 6:30 PM
In his latest graphic novel, Dragon Hoops, New York Times bestselling author Gene Luen Yang turns the spotlight on his life, his family, and the high school where he teaches. While Gene understands stories—comic book stories in particular—he doesn’t get sports. He lost interest in basketball as a kid, but at the high school where he now teaches, it’s all anyone can talk about. The men’s varsity team, the Dragons, is having a phenomenal season and each victory brings them closer to the California State Championships. Once Gene gets to know these young all-stars, he realizes that their story is just as thrilling as anything he’s seen on a comic book page.
