In Conversation with Comics Journalist Casey Gilly
Special Event for Middle Readers and Teens!

Mariko Tamaki, author of the Caldecott Honor and Eisner Award-winning This One Summer, and Eisner Award-nominated artist Joëlle Jones (Lady Killer) combine forces for Supergirl: Being Super!

Welcome to Midvale, home to Liberty High School and an unusual girl named Kara Danvers. While it may seem like your ordinary town, girls like Kara make it extraordinary. She's super-strong, she can fly and she crash-landed on Earth in a rocket ship. But for Kara Danvers, winning the next track meet, celebrating her 16th birthday and surviving her latest mega-zit are her top concerns.

Now Kara's incredible powers are kicking into high gear -- and people she trusted are revealing creepy ulterior motives. The time has come for her to choose between the world where she was born and the only world she's ever known.
