Book to Art | War of the Worlds

Join us next week for our first Book to Art Club meeting of the semester, as we continue our discussion of HG Well's War of the Worlds and work on our final zine project due out in May.  Stop by to contribute to the project and check out our first floor display devoted to this classic and all it's visual embodiments.

Started by the Library-As-Incubator Project, the Book to Art Club is a book + art-making club that exists virtually and in-person at libraries around the world. Our selection for this year is HG Wells' War of the Worlds, a story told time and again through various media--films, comics, radio. Come for some general discussion (of both the book and other incarnations) and make some art. At the end of the year, we will turn our collective endeavors into a book art/zine project in time for the Manifest Celebration.
