The public is invited to this event, which is especially geared toward families.
Also, for anyone who missed the Your First Comic classes available at many York County Libraries this summer, Junior Dispatch's John Simcoe will be there to host another free one-hour comic-book class. Aside from the Your First Comic class, there will also be coloring pages, videos and snacks for kids to enjoy.
