Spring Break Comic Camp for Kids and Teens

UPDATE: In light of the COVID-19 crisis and recommendations from health officials to practice social distancing and cancel non-essential programs and events, the Powell River Public Library has decided that it will be cancelling the upcoming Spring Break Comic Camp.

Our facilitator Natasha Donovan was planning on travelling from Washington State, and with the directives from the Provincial and Federal government around non-essential travel we were in touch with Natasha and agreed that it would be best if she didn’t travel at this time.

The library’s popular  Spring Break Comic Camp is back, this year with graphic novelist Natasha Donovan, Monday through Friday March 23-27 in the First Credit Union Community Room. A Kids Camp (ages 8-11) will run from 10am-noon. A Tween and Teen Camp (ages 12+) will run from 1pm-4pm. Registration is required and space is limited.

Natasha is a Métis illustrator from Vancouver, British Columbia, with a focus on comics and children’s illustration. Her short comic work has appeared in The Other Side Anthology (2016) and This Place Anthology (2018). She illustrated the award-winning children’s book “The Sockeye Mother” (written by Brett Huson) and the graphic novel “Surviving the City” (written by Tasha Spillett). She has a degree in Anthropology from the University of British Columbia, and has worked in academic and magazine publishing. She currently lives in Bellingham, Washington.

This event is presented in partnership with the Powell River Literacy Office.
