Hello! Last November 7th, I got the opportunity to visit LibraryCon LIVE 2018 which was hosted by Library Journal and School Library Journal. This was my first time attending said event and it surely didn’t disappoint. I want to thank the team behind Diamond Comics and Diamond Book Distributors especially Ashley Kronsberg. Ashley, thank you so much for informing me about the event!

I had so much fun during the online event and I want to share my experience with everyone! Right now the virtual environment is archived and you can visit it here.

Freebies

These are some of the free comics and graphic novels I claimed at the event. I also have numerous (and endless) samples that are too many to share haha. These babies will definitely help me kill time. And the graphics are just gorgeous!


My Experience

During the event, I got to chat with various graphic novel authors, comics enthusiasts, and even the wonderful people running each booth and exhibit. I received free samples of upcoming graphic novels as well as copies of existing ones. I read about lots of news on comics as I navigate through each booth.

Overall, LibraryCon LIVE 2018 was a very enjoyable experience for me, I had a great time and met amazing people. This is an experience worth telling my classmates at school (I already did lol). I’m looking forward to next year’s event!
