In celebration of the addition of 153 new graphic novels made possible by the Texas Book Festival Collection Enhancement Grant, we will be hosting an Animanga Con event on September 29th from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM! There will be a costume contest, anime/manga trivia, character preference debate, and much more! Attendees are welcome to come dressed as their favorite anime, manga, or superhero character, but a costume is not required. Please keep costumes appropriate. Any attendees wearing attire that is too revealing will be asked to change or leave. For props, no metal or projectile weapons are allowed, and all guns must have an orange tip. Light snacks provided. Ages 13+ only. Please call (903) 237-1350 for more info! Special thanks to East Texas Rose Con. and Three Suns Unlimited for donating tickets and gift cards for this event, and to Heroic Inner Kids: East Texas for their advice and coordination help!
