Civic Theatre and Purdue University Galleries want your involvement to create "A Living Graphic Novel."

On Saturday, August 15, Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette and Purdue University Galleries ArtCart will collaborate to present "A Living Graphic Novel" as part of the One Great Read Project. The event will take place at Imagination Station, located at 600 N. 4th Street in Lafayette.

One Great Read is a two-county, two-month series of activities. The selection and organizing committee includes representatives from the Tippecanoe County Public Library system, West Lafayette Public Library, Monticello-Union Township Library, Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette, Barnes and Noble Booksellers and local residents. The 2009 One Great Read title is Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi. It tells the story of a young girl's journey through revolution and war in Iran.

In "A Living Graphic Novel," participants will create the story and build it to a complete, live visualization by designing, painting and presenting a graphic novel with several comic frames, live actors, backdrops, props and costumes, all of which will be accomplished on the day of the event.

The workshop is open to the public, both to participate and to watch the creative process. No pre-registration is necessary. For more information, contact Steven Koehler of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette at 765-423-7529 or
