One of our favorite programs, Coffee and Comics, is back! In partnership with Rising Star Coffee Roasters in Cleveland, join us for a morning of coffee, comics, and drawing. Coffee and Comics is about bringing the community together to share an interest in the comics medium and help individuals develop comic knowledge and skills. In the month of October, we will have two incredible local comics creators present workshops at The Roastery, 3617 Walton Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113. Rising Star has been expanding its workspace. We will no longer be meeting in the Roasting Room but rather their space in Building A, Room 102. If you are having a hard time finding the building just look for the Cleveland Public Library van!
Masks are not required but encouraged. Hope to see you there!
