What's better than a leisurely hour exploring Indian comics? Reading Indian comics while enjoying FREE Indian snacks!
Come up to the International and Area Studies Library to check out a curated selection of Indian comics from our renowned South Asian comic collection. You can read as many or as few comics as you like, enjoy some of the free refreshments, get to know the South Asian Studies and Global Popular Culture Librarian, and mingle with other comics fans in attendance.
This event is part of the International and Area Studies Library's suite of programming sponsored by an NEA Big Read grant.
