Megan Kearney and Meaghan Carter exhibit at Word On The Street

A variety of Canadian comic book creators exhibited at the recent Word On The Street in Toronto, Ontario. I had the opportunity to chat with Steven Andrews, Stephanie Cooke, Kelvin Nyeusi Mawazo, Megan Kearney, Keith Grachow, Meaghan Carter, and Sam Noir.

Word On The Street is a national celebration of literacy and Canadian writing. Each September, the event hosts hundreds of author readings for visitors of all ages while offering a vibrant marketplace featuring a vast selection of books and magazines and comic books available in Canada.

So in that setting, I asked the thorny age-old question “Are comic books literature?”

Thanks to all the comic book creators for chatting with me.
