Join Congressman John Lewis and co-author Andrew Aydin for a reading and discussion of Lewis’ graphic memoir, March: Book One. March is a vivid first-hand account of Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, a contemporary meditation on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis’ personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader Civil Rights Movement. March: Book One was the winner of a Robert F. Kennedy Book Award and is a Coretta Scott King Honor Book. It is a Reader’s Digest Graphic Novel that Every Grown-Up Should Read. It was a New York Times and Washington Post bestseller and an American Library Association Notable Book. A book signing will follow the reading.
