Comic-Con Adds a Sixth Book Club in Escondido!
In 2014, Comic-Con International embarked on an ambitious program to create graphic novel book clubs in the San Diego Public Library system. Two of the clubs started that year (Downtown and Mission Valley), and two more were added in 2015 (La Jolla and North Park). Earlier this year, a fifth club was added at the Encinitas Public Library, part of the San Diego County Library system, and we’re happy to announce the addition of a sixth official Comic-Con International Graphic Novel Book Club at the Escondido Public Library, beginning in October!
We are currently accepting membership applications for this new group, which will be meeting once a month at the Escondido Public Library, 239 S. Kalmia St., Escondido, CA 92025. You must fill out a membership application to be considered for this new club. You can download the official membership application by clicking here, but please keep in mind the following guidelines:
- Members must be 18 years of age or older
- Members must have a Comic-Con Member ID
- Members are responsible for obtaining their own books for each monthly meeting, either in print or digital versions or borrowed from a local library
Please submit the application form to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, October 1 for consideration for membership in the club. Membership is limited to 20 people. If accepted, you will receive a confirmation email from us with details on the first meeting.
