Tune in for the livestream. The Brooklyn Book Festival joins the Reading is Magic Festival for a celebration of the power of an image to tell stories, to express identity and to be a tool for activism whether in comics, picture books or painted large on the side of a building. Join three young voices talking about why a picture for them tells more than a thousand words.  With Toronto based comic writer and critic Ardo Omer, New York based mural artist and picture book illustrator Katie Yamasaki and comic-focused computer art student Caitlyn Bannatyne.
