Secret Stacks Podcast Episode 6
Comics are seeing a new golden age – of talent, readers, and resources. Secret Stacks invites you to join a conversation between Kristin Lalonde and Thomas Maluck, two librarians who share comics and graphic novel news, readers advisory, guest interviews, and tales from the front lines of conventions and library services. Each episode appears here on CCGC Libraries on the second Wednesday of each month, with show notes to accompany topics covered in each episode.
You can also find us on iTunes, Stitcher, or whatever podcast app of choice!
