Kids, parents, educators and librarians can all learn about the latest all-ages comics at this weekend’s free Kids Read Comics convention at the Ann Arbor District Library, 343 S. Fifth.

Special programs for librarians and teachers start at 10 a.m. Friday, but the main event, featuring panel discussions, hands-on workshops and dozens of creators, local and beyond, talking to readers and, in many cases, selling their comics, starts at 11 a.m. Saturday with a kickoff event featuring Matthew Holm (“Babymouse”). The show runs until 6 p.m. Saturday and 12:30-6 p.m. Sunday.
