Animation Unleashed

animation_unleashedMy city has an amazing library system — the Toronto Public Library — and to keep teens reading throughout the summer, they’ve created a book club geared to 13- to 19-year-olds called Word Out with a weekly listing of a fiction, non-fiction and graphic novel suggestions, a blog on which kids can post their reviews, and there are contests, too. If the number of comments on the blog is any indication, this is a very popular club for Toronto teens.  I want to highlight one of the books on the list, Animation Unleashed, which is a how-to guide by animation theorist Ellen Besen and illustrated by Bryce Hallet (and Tamar Lipsey) of Toronto.  The  book got an Avenue-page treatment in the National Post last fall for its launch, which included an interview with Besen. Read it here.
