Through presentations focused on educators and librarians, Comic-Con hopes to engage the community and promote comics as a medium for learning and as a literary art form.

The CCEL panels span all five days of the convention (July 24-28) and are free to attend and open to the public. Those interested can register now at the SD Public Library website to reserve a seat. Comic-Con badges are not required.
