Today at 1 p.m. at the Broward County Main Library (100 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale), you can check out a lecture on the importance of Eisners A Contract with God by Barry University professor Dr. Andrea Greenbaum. Its the first in a monthly, five part lecture series called Modern Marvels: Jewish Adventures in the Graphic Novel. Sponsored by a grant from the American Library Association, the lectures will feature seminal works of comic literature by Jewish writers and artists like Art Spiegelman (Maus) and Harvey Pekar (The Quitter). Greenbaum, who is in the process of drafting a class on graphic novels at Barry, will host the full series, but good news is you can catch her lectures at the Library for free. Register in advance by calling 954-357-6122.
Second Sunday of every month, 1 p.m. Starts: July 13. Continues through Nov. 9, 2008
