On August 17, 2013, Roanoke Doesn’t Suck (aka “Things In Roanoke That Don’t Suck” on Facebook) will be hosting the 3rd Annual Geek Mob!: International Read Comics in Public Day. This year, we are partnering with the O. Winston Link Museum who will display a special collection of photographs by Gregg Segal entitled “Super Heroes at Home." These photos pair with a movie titled: “Confessions of a Superhero,” which will also be a featured during this event.
Upstairs in the lobby and on the front port will be the following (this area is FREE to the Public):
Super Hero Cartoons
Crafts with the History Museum
Live Music: Levi’s Gene Pool
Comic Book Drive (benefitting Blue Ridge Autism and Achievement Center; Salem Public Library and Catawba Hospital Patients)
Quiet Reading Area
Downstairs in the gallery and theatre areas will be the following:
Magician: Bone Daddy
Puppets in Performance
Gallery showing (photos by Gregg Segal)
Film Screening: “Confessions of a Superhero”
Live Music: Another Roadside Attraction
Free Chair Massages
This area is not FREE, but the admission is discounted to $3.00 (or $2.00 with a canned food donation to benefit Southwest Virginia Second Harvest Food Bank).
We will be available to do onsite interviews at O. Winston Link Museum, if you would like (and we hope you will!) the day before the event (August 16, 2013). We can make arrangements outside of that timeframe as well. Last year, we held this event at the Roanoke City Library and we feel as though it was a huge success. We hope that it will be even more so this year. Thank you in advance for any promotion and support.
