Randy Emberlin, a comic book artist, will be leading a workshop at the Washougal Library August 27 and 28 (We don't have times yet). The workshop will be a total of 4 hours long.
Participants will create the cover of a comic book and will be encouraged to allow them to put on display at the Maryhill Museum of Art. Teens with art on display will be invited to the opening ceremony of a comic art exhibit and they and their parents will be given free tickets. While at the museum participants will be given the opportunity to talk informally about their covers. I imagine this will be a program teens need to sign up for, and am not sure how many will take yet, but wanted to give you a heads-up.

"I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff . I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be."
Generations of students and teachers have been forever changed by author J.D. Salinger and his acclaimed novel The Catcher in the Rye. Salinger, the reclusive author of Catcher and numerous other books and stories, has died, but his stories live on in the canon of great literature. We at Shmoop have always had reverence for Salinger - a man who broke the boundaries of literature and brought us one of the most sympathetic and complex young characters of all time, Holden Caulfield. Although Holden is Salinger's best-known character, most of Salinger's writing featured incredibly intelligent, sensitive, spiritual children or adults who had trouble functioning in the real world. Many would say that J.D. Salinger himself fit this description as well. Here at Shmoop, we continually find inspiration and revelation in Salinger's work, and we salute him.
