From June 14 through 17, the Library is celebrating the world of comics with its “Library of Awesome” pop-up exhibit and other programming being presented in conjunction with Awesome Con, Washington, D.C.’s annual convention of comics, cosplay and pop culture.

More than 100 iconic comic-book issues are on display, featuring themes including Wonder Woman, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, children’s comics and sci-fi comics.

If you’re in Washington, come to the Jefferson Building of the Library between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to see the fantastic display for yourself!

    The Wonder of Wonder Women who surrounds, support, teach us us, support us and teaches us how to use and “make a way out of no way” as we open spaces to question, clarify, present our thoughts, and take the responsibility to nourish and keep the wonder flowing in our daughters, nieces, cousins, aunties, friends, colleagues and acquaintances.

    We are wonder full…full of wonderness.

    Interesting blog about Wonder Woman… we need all the strong women we can get, strong in all that really counts: brains, confidence, and initiative to make America Fair, Just and Caring to all people, everywhere.

    Thank you for bringing back the memory of my childhood hero! You remind us all that we must summon courage, determination, and honor every day. We saw the new Wonder Woman movie and it had all of the energy, hope, strength, and inspiration that Lynda brought to my living room when I was a little girl. Wonder Woman is looking just as beautiful as she did the very first time I saw her! Thank you!

    Wonder Woman is such a driving force for so many women a character who shows strength over beauty. Lynda Carter is a fierce woman and a tireless champion for women.
