Trivia, Card Game and one Terrific Graphic Novel
Hello again all in the Land of Blog!!!!! I Darth Bill send you warm wishes (well as warm as a Sith can) and greetings. I am very excited because I have a very special announcement to make on this blog. It's better than flying a Tie Fighter; better than fighting Yoda in a one on one Light Saber Battle; even better than blowing something up with a Death Star. What is it you ask??????? Well, let me tell you.
First you must answer yes to the following questions:
1) Do you enjoy Comics and Graphic Novels?
2) Do you enjoy trivia and feats of knowledge?
3) Do you enjoy strategic card games?
If you answered yes to those three questions, man, do I have something to tell you!!!!!!!
Well, one of the best Graphic Novels to come out in a long time is now in the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County System. What is the name of this great book you ask???? The name of this Graphic Novel is "The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli" by Joe Piscope. What's even better is that it is just the first volume of more to come. To celebrate this new Graphic Novel Series we will be having a special "Capt'n Eli" Event here in the Spangler Library at ImaginOn on 9/10/08 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
This event will involve:
1) Collecting game cards (relating to "The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli" card game), through searching for Trivia Posters posted throughout the Spangler Room. To obtain a game card you must answer the trivia questions correctly.
2) Playing the super cool card strategy game (with the cards you collected through the trivia contest) with other kids who come to the event.
3) Obtaining Official Membership as a "Seasearcher" with all its rights and privileges.
4) Getting the chance to be one of the first people to check out from the library "The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli."
This event is going to be a blast matey!!!!! So if you live nearby, be sure to try and make it here. If you have any questions, please just post to the blog or give a call to the library at 704-973-2720.
