Maverick Reading List
The Maverick Graphic Novels Reading List was the brainchild of then library school students Alicia Holston and Tuan Nguyen, who both share a passion for reading graphic novels. With the help of librarians Renee Dyer (Weslaco ISD), Wylaina Hildreth (Denton Public Library), Laura Jewell (Plano Public Library), and Jennifer Smith (East Central ISD), the Maverick Graphic Novels Reading List was created and approved in 2009 to encourage young adult readers, grades 6-12, to explore a variety of current books in graphic novel format. The name, “Maverick” was chosen for this reading list because Texas was the first state to create a graphic novel reading list—we were the Mavericks in the field.
