Kat Kan has been reading comics for more than 50 years (she started VERY young!), and has been working with comics in libraries since 1983. She’s worked in public libraries in Hawaii and Indiana, and currently works (from home in Florida) for Brodart Books & Library Services as the Collection Development Librarian/Graphic Novel Specialist and as a part-time school librarian for St. John Catholic School in Panama City, Florida. She has been writing the “Graphically Speaking” column for Voice of Youth Advocates since 1994, and she reviews children’s graphic novels for Booklist, the review journal for the American Library Association. She’s also the wife of a Lutheran pastor, mother of two comics-reading sons, and grandmother to a boy who is doomed to read comics.
