The Emerald City Book Club meets the FIRST TUESDAY of the month from 7-8 pm in our Events Room to chat about the featured book. We usually begin each meeting with a “Comics 101” slideshow giving some historical, artistic, or social background on the book, and then we dive right into discussion!
The featured book for next meeting will be announced at the end of the current meeting, and that book is 20% OFF for the month leading up to its ECBC meeting! (The discount will be calculated at the register, and does not combine with any other discounts or programs).
This month’s featured book is…
MARCH GN BOOK 01
IDW – TOP SHELF
(W) John Lewis, Andrew Aydin (A/CA) Nate Powell
As seen on The Colbert Report and CNN, this is the first graphic novel from a sitting member of Congress, Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, and American icon. John Lewis rose from humble beginnings to become a national leader of the civil rights movement. This is his story, from an Alabama farm to the March on Washington and beyond, co-written by Andrew Aydin and brought to astonishing life by Nate Powell in a graphic novel trilogy. With a back cover blurb by President Bill Clinton!
