Award-win­ning il­lus­tra­tor, graphic de­signer, and news­pa­per colum­nist Craig Schaf­fer will be at the Ex­eter Com­mu­nity Library at 6:30 p.m. on Thurs­day, Nov. 15, to dis­cuss his ca­reer as an il­lus­tra­tor.

He will de­tail the re­cent cre­ation and pub­li­ca­tion of his orig­i­nal su­per­hero comic book “Back­draft.”

Schaf­fer is a grad­u­ate of the Montser­rat Col­lege of Art and is a Bucks County na­tive whose il­lus­trated columns, Snap­shot and Sketch­book, ap­pear weekly in the Read­ing Ea­gle.

The library event won’t be Schaf­fer’s first foray into pub­lic speak­ing. He’s spo­ken at area col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties about the his­tory of pub­lish­ing, and he fre­quently vis­its el­e­men­tary schools to talk about the im­por­tance of na­ture and art.

The fam­ily-friendly event is free and open to the pub­lic, though at­ten­dees are asked to call the library at 610-4069431 to reg­is­ter. Schaf­fer’s work can be seen and pur­chased on his web­site at www.craig-schaf­fer.com, but copies of “Back­draft” will also be avail­able for pur­chase dur­ing the event on Thurs­day at the Ex­eter Com­mu­nity Library at 4569 Prest­wick Dr., Read­ing, 19606.

The Art of Il­lus­tra­tion is one of many free events of­fered to the pub­lic through a part­ner­ship be­tween pro­gram pre­sen­ters, Friends of the Ex­eter Com­mu­nity Library, and The Ex­eter Com­mu­nity Library.

For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.berk­sli­braries.org/ex­eter or the Ex­eter Com­mu­nity Library Face­book page.

Through its var­ied pro­grams, the Ex­eter Com­mu­nity Library aims to serve the com­mu­nity as a cen­ter of learn­ing, ac­ces­si­ble re­cre­ation, prac­ti­cal tools, and nearly 500 free pro­grams de­signed for chil­dren and adults to par­tic­i­pate in through­out the year.
