Event Description: 

Join us for a conversation about comics, sustainability, and advocacy during Earth Week. 

Nancy Silberkleit is co-CEO of Archie Comic Publications, one of the most successful, longest-running brands in the history of the comic industry. Her vision is that the comic book is a valuable tool for developing literacy among first-time readers and instilling a love of reading in everyone. In this public conversation at RIT, Nancy will discuss the comic “Getting Drastic with Plastic,” published in time for Earth Day in Archie’s Funhouse Double Digest #26, and her work in comics outreach. The conversation will be moderated by RIT faculty member and comics scholar Daniel Worden.

Free and open to the public. 

Sponsored by the School of Individualized Study.
