The San Bernardino Public Library to host Manga/Anime Workshop by Mexico City’s Gaby Maya
Artist and writer, Gaby Maya, will be visiting the San Bernardino Public Library on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 3:30 p.m. She will do a talk about some of the origins of manga and anime, as well as the influence of manga and anime in Mexico. Gaby says, "We have a culture here (in Mexico) where anime has been a bridge to close the generation gap between parents and kids. Because everyone has watched an anime they love, and thanks to the constant re-runs, they share it with their kids. It's something very Mexican, indeed." More Maya article here
