Out of the Box: The Graphic Novel Comes of Age

The graphic novel is arguably the single most exciting new development in illustrated literature for children and teens in a generation. As pioneers of a rapidly evolving art form, graphic novelists continue to explore the vast middle ground between the picture book and text-only narrative. Out of the Box examines the graphic novel’s coming of age through a close look at ten poignant coming-of-age stories by Vera Brosgol, Catia Chien, Geoffrey Hayes, Gene Luen Yang, Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Hope Larson, Matt Phelan, David Small, Raina Telgemeier, and Sara Varon. An illustrated catalogue, with an essay by curator Leonard S. Marcus, will be published.

This exhibition is curated by Leonard S. Marcus.

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from Candlewick Press, Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, and Scholastic, Inc.
