Is it political if I tell you that if we burn coal, you’re going to warm the atmosphere? Or is that a statement of fact that you’ve made political? It’s a scientific statement. The fact that there are elements of society that have made it political, that’s a whole other thing.

Tell us about yourself. Are you currently an active archer? When did you first take up a bow? If you’ve stopped for any reason, why is that?

What sort of a bow do you use? Why did you choose it?

When did you first fall in love with the idea of archery? What was it that got you interested? Is this the same aspect of archery as your enduring enjoyment?

Are you a sporty person, outside of your participation in archery? Do you take part in many other active hobbies? If you don’t, what makes archery different? What makes archery important?

How easy was it for you to find a beginner’s course, a club, or your own personal entry into the sport? Were there any barriers?

What was you reaction to the sudden archery boom of the last few years? Were you enthused by Merida, Katniss and Hawkeye taking the big screen? Did you notice it affecting your friends, peers, or club membership?

What’s your current favourite archery-related comic/book/myth/film/etc?

Has your motivation been affected by fictional characters, fictional archers? Tell us all about it!

“First Second brings us Hidden, out today. By Loïc Dauvillier, translated from its original French, with art from Marc Lizano and inks by Greg Salsedo, it is a Holocaust education story for younger children. Hidden follows the story of Dounia, who tells her granddaughter the story of her experience during the Holocaust as a little girl. A story that has been told to no one else. Thanks to this framing device, we have three stories in one: 1) the story of Dounia’s youth, 2) the story of how and exactly what she tells Elsa—sometimes she’ll include elements we know she didn’t witness, but can a grown woman pretend not to know that police must have been violent towards her Jewish father during his nighttime arrest?—and 3) the repercussions this storytelling has within the family, during Dounia’s old age. It’s a story that ultimately plays with time, telling how events like the holocaust can not only affect one’s past, present, and future but also the generations that follow.”
—Claire Napier and Ardo Omer, "Collaborative Review: Hidden, Out Today"

If you need a way to talk to you children about antisemitism, this book is an introduction I’d recommend.
