About our presenter: Anthony Bracco owns and operates Bracco Farms, a small family farm in the black dirt region of Pine Island, NY. He uses sustainable farming techniques to grow clean, pure produce that is a favorite among chefs.

SUNDAY, MARCH 6, 2022 @ 3:00PM via ZOOM Presenter: Sharon Adarlo
Graphic novels are not just about superheroes, and they are not just for comic book geeks! Over the years, this art form has matured from men in tights to a wide range of subjects, including first-person memoir graphic novels and compelling journalism that shines a light on once hidden subjects.
We will explore the graphic novel in its many different forms, from the typical superhero comics that we all know and love to the experimental. We will also discuss zines, as they are a very similar product.
About the Presenter Sharon Adarlo is a writer, artist, illustrator and maker. She has studied at UVA, New York Academy of Art, School of Visual Arts and Grande Central Atelier. She is an accomplished artist, whose style ranges from cartoonish to traditional, classical art. She is keenly interested in how we can meld together art and writing into compelling storytelling.
