Introducing Liz Jones, Graphic Novels Category

LizJones Liz Jones is a fan of visual storytelling who began accumulating picture books for her children at least a decade before they were born. She'd never read a graphic novel before volunteering with the Cybils back in 2007, as graphics are in short supply in her area. She was awestruck at the range and depth of the genre when the review copies started rolling in. Now she shamelessly plugs graphics (and the Cybils) in her jobs as a therapist for troubled kids and as a children's lit prof, and hopes that someday she may write/draw a graphic of her own. Her children pounce on incoming review copies, devour the contents, and shamelessly plug graphics to their friends, teachers, librarians, and random strangers in bookstores.
