John Lewis’ March: Book Three, Hit Shelves Last Week

March: Book Three, the third installment of Rep. John Lewis‘ acclaimed graphic novel trilogy recounting the mid-60s civil rights movement, hit the shelves last Tuesday. March: Book Two, released in January 2015, won a 2016 Eisner Award, and the series will be used in New York City Public Schools to teach eighth-grade students about the civil rights movement.

“I think the book to some degree has become what I like to call a change agent,” Mr. Lewis told the New York Times, and has motivated “another generation to get out there and push and pull and try to set things right.”

Books In Common has had the great pleasure of arranging some events for John Lewis, and we’re looking forward to more.
