The Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records will be returning to Phoenix Comicon at the Phoenix Convention Center. At our booth visitors will learn what they can “Discover & Create” at their local libraries, ranging from content inspiration from bizarre Arizona court cases to 3-D printing for innovative ideas. Comicon offers a great opportunity to reach new audiences and publicize library offerings that allow patrons to discover and create their own worlds.
Reading Arizona offers secondary sources that can help creators craft a rich Southwestern setting, whether the genre is steampunk, sci-fi, or historical fiction. Content creators can be inspired by Arizona history and its fascinating characters and events (Winnie Ruth Judd! Olive Oatman!), learn more about the desert landscape, or read works by authors interpreting their own vision of Arizona.
