Eric Fulford's Comic Creations Monday July 24th 2pm at the Woonsocket Harris Public Library

"The Building Blocks of Comic Creation"

Great for ages 5 & up. This summer's program is an interactive storytelling show in which the audience helps me design a silly, zany comic strip. We will learn about the different ingredients that make up a comic or cartoon, and how those pieces come together! The program will address ideas like simple illustration techniques, communicating through art, and using sequential images to tell a story that is easy to understand.

 

Sponsored by the RI Office of Library and Information Services with funding from the Institute for Museum services and local RI Libraries, and the Friends of the Woonsocket Harris Public Library.

The House is rejecting the first of two House Republican immigration bills. The hardline measure failed on a vote of 193-231. Meanwhile, GOP leaders delayed a vote on a second more moderate plan until tomorrow to give members more time to consider the bill.       President Trump blames Democrats for blocking efforts to reform the nation's immigration system. Speaking at the White House today, Trump said "extremist, open-border Democrats" are slowing down the process of fixing federal immigration laws. His comments come as First Lady Melania Trump makes a surprise visit to a holding center for immigrant children in McAllen, Texas.       Online shopping is about to get more expensive. The U.S. Supreme Court is clearing the way to allow sales taxes when you buy something on the Internet. The court ruled states can start collecting sales tax even if the retailers don't have a store or warehouse in the state.        FBI officials are warning travelers about a surge in sexual assaults on commercial airline flights. According to reports, there has been a 66-percent spike in cases opened from 2014 to 2017. Officials say passengers need to stay alert since the assaults are most likely to happen when the cabin is dark and the victim is asleep, such as red eye flights.        Transgender people are no longer considered as mentally ill. The World Health Organization now classifies it as a sexual health condition. WHO says it stopped classifying transgenderism as a mental illness after understanding it is not an actual mental health condition.        The 2018 NBA Draft tips off tonight in Brooklyn, New York. The Phoenix Suns are expected to use their first-overall pick to tap Deandre Ayton from the University of Arizona. The Sacramento Kings are reportedly deciding between Duke's Marvin Bagley the Third, Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. and Slovenian star Luka Doncic [[ DON-chitch ]] or possibly even trading the number-two pick.
