Even if I'm not technically out in public (though the cats are both giving me the hairy eyeball off-screen), it's still a great, shameless excuse to show off the brand-new t-shirts now available at the Literacy Council of Alaska.
Via a post on Boing Boing comes a spiffy gig called "International Read Comics in Public Day" - basically an awareness campaign similar to 24-Hour Comics Day (though not anywhere near as much of an ordeal), and Free Comic Book Day, and The Big Cartoon Kablooey too, for that matter...
So next Saturday, August 28th, I'm thinking of throwing one here in Fairbanks: maybe hopefully get the local public library to help host it. I'll whip up a poster this weekend, maybe get some press, do a Facebook Events page, and have folks post pictures of themselves and other people reading a comic in public.
It'd be a great way to publicize the fantastic resource we have here with the Fairbanks North Star Borough Noel Wien Public Library's extensive collection.
