LLAGNY's Graphic Novel Book Club

Who We Are

The LLAGNY Graphic Novel Book Club began in 2015 at the New York Law Institute (NYLI). NYLI provided space for members of the New York Law
Institute community and LLAGNY to connect over reading.  In 2019 we asked LLAGNY if we could be sponsored by the Education Committee. The Board agreed. NYLI continued to host meeting in person, but now we are using WebEx and Zoom.

Realizing how busy people are, we focus on quick reads. We hope you will join us for some fun and thought provoking conversations!

LLAGNY's Graphic Novel Book Club Moves Online

undefinedIn light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've brought our graphic novel book club online.

We’re all dealing with a lot right now! Join as you like, discuss as much as you want--or just hang out and enjoy the company. Everyone is welcome. Just RSVP so we know how many to expect, and we’ll send out a WebEx or Zoom link the week of the meeting.   

Our next meeting will be held:

Thursday April 22nd @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

We hope you’ll join us!

Future Meeting Discussions

What We've Got Planned Next

 Up next in April is City of Glass: The Graphic Novel Paul Karasik (Adapted by) Paul Auster (Author). We are very excited to be bringing you our lunchtime meeting group within an online forum.

Each meeting will feature stand-alone discussions from each book, so attendance at each meeting is not necessary to following along. 

Copies of graphic novels are available at Amazon.com and NYPL.
