Archie Comics Co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit Talk
August 11, 2018 | 3:30 PM - 5:00PM | Moderated by Pam Pastor | Ballroom 1
Nancy Silberkleit, daughter-in-law of Louis H. Silberkleit one of the founders of Archie Comics Publications, stepped into her role as Co-CEO of the company in 2009 with a vision that the comic book as a graphic novel is a valuable tool for developing literacy among first-time readers and instilling a love of reading for everyone. As a former public school educator, homemaker and mother, she knows the importance of learning to read and coined a personal motto that "Children + Comic Books = Reading, Knowledge and Confidence."
She is the wife of the late Michael Silberkleit, who was the son of Archie Comics founder Louis Silberkleit, who with his partner John L. Goldwater founded Archie Comics in 1942.
