2013 Read Comics In Public Day!
The San Diego Event
 Is Running
Saturday, August 24, 2013
10:00am until 3:00pm


TODAY'S FEATURE IS (GUEST) BLOG #3927 -     I mentioned this little comic book 'get-together' on my Facebook Fan Page, Michael D Hamersky On Comics, but haven't yet blogged about this upcoming event.  So I'm doing it today!

The reason why, is that the event date in San Diego was changed.  Here, let me re-post what is on the Facebook Event Page for this event:

Yes, sequential art fans, it's time once again for the annual Read Comics in Public Day celebration in San Diego! *Kermit arm wave*

For 2013, our San Diego celebration will be on August 24, a Saturday. (NOTE: date changed to 24, was originally August 31)

Each year RCPD, an international event, is scheduled for Aug 28, which is Jack "The King" Kirby's birthday. But that's a Wednesday this year. So we're going to hold our San Diego RCPD festivities the Saturday before on August 24. After all, it's scheduled for Kirby's b-day and sometimes you've gotta celebrate a friend's natal date the weekend before or after the actual day.

The tables outside the Starbucks at the corner of Genesse and Balboa (4227 Genesee Avenue) in the Clairemont neighborhood on Saturday, August 24, from 10:am to 3:ish.

I'll have a Read Comics in Public Day sign taped up on one of the umbrella poles, and a pile of comics on a table.

A day of reading and talking about comics in public on a sunny summer day.

There are lots of tables and umbrellas at the Starbucks, but you should still wear sunscreen and a hat. SERIOUSLY, WEAR A HAT. And bring water.

Most importantly, bring comics and/or graphic novels to share. A big part of Read Comics in Public Day is sharing and discovering new titles.

This is the fourth year of this international event, originally founded in 2010 as a day to show off your love of comic books by being seen reading them in public.

It's a public event, so feel free to invite other people. Children encouraged.

My thanks to Chriss Cornish for hosting this event again this year!

Hope to see some of you in the San Diego Metro Area at this event!
