How do you add faces to characters you’ve never seen? Is it hard to draw a beloved novel? In this program artist Mel Valentine Vargas is joined by National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Meg Medina. Together they will share how they transformed Medina’s “Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass” into this new graphic novel adaptation. Moderated by Monica Valentine.
