In 2017, NYCC teamed up with The New York Public Library to expand our offerings for educators and librarians by providing them with an exclusive space for panels, networking, and workshops.

NYCC at The New York Public Library featured a keynote talk from Laurie Halse Anderson (Speak,) and Ngozi Ukazu (Check, Please!) and intimate panel sessions (and a few awesome giveaways and signings) from Boom! Studios, Scholastic, Valiant Entertainment, Image Comics, Udon Entertainment, the French Comics Association, CBC, the ALA, and more! 

We are collecting presentation and handout materials from panels that took place at the Library. This page will be updated as we receive information from panelists:
