Cartoonist to speak at Grove City College
Cartoonist and graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang, whose work explores cultural and religious themes, inspired an upcoming streaming series and pitted Superman against the Klan, will speak at Grove City College next week.
Yang will speak at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30, in the auditorium of Crawford Hall on campus.
He will discuss his work, including the graphic novel “Boxers and Saints,” which addresses the violent conflict between traditional Chinese culture and Western influences, including Christianity, during the 1899-1901 Boxer Rebellion in China, as well as “Secret Coders,” a series of mystery novels for kids that teaches about basic coding.
The lecture is free and open to the public, according to a news release from Grove City College.
