Wolk presents a talk and slideshow about Captain America's 80 years as a funhouse-mirror reflection of American political history.
A discussion will follow.
“Wolk’s light and humorous style appeals. . . . [All of the Marvels] will likely become a bible for serious comics fans and a useful introduction and reference guide for all others. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal
“Wolk pulls off an extraordinary feat in this tour-de-force, distilling over 60 years of Marvel Comics stories into a fascinating guide that will resonate with true believers and neophytes alike. . . . Comics fans will be riveted.”
Come to a virtual meeting where you can learn how to help shape new City Council district boundaries and even submit your own maps on paper or using online tools.
The City’s eight Council boundaries are re-drawn every ten years using updated Census figures, but, for the first time in Berkeley, they’ll be drawn by an independent commission rather than elected officials.
The launch of the public submission period is on Oct. 2, when you can come to the commission’s kick-off meeting.
We’ll be making the online and printable mapping tools available after the meeting. During the meeting, we’ll demonstrate how to use them. You will also have the chance to share general thoughts on the redistricting process during the meeting.
