Professor to serve on award selection jury

Jerry Zolten, associate professor of communication arts and sciences at Penn State Altoona, recently was invited to serve on the inaugural award selection jury for the Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize. The award is sponsored by the Penn State University Libraries and administered by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book. It honors  Ward's influence in the development of the graphic novel. The first award recipient will be announced in the spring.

Zolten was selected to serve on the jury, in part, because of his use of graphic novels in his teaching and research.
