Ari Kelman and Jonathan Fetter-Vorm - Battle Lines: A Graphic History of the Civil War

Friday, May 22, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Fetter-Vorm, author and illustrator of Trinity: A Graphic History of the First Atomic Bomb, chosen by the ALA as 2013’s best graphic novel for teens, and Kelman, professor of the Civil War era at Penn State and author of A Misplaced Massacre, have teamed up for a unique and illuminating view of the War Between the States. Using Fetter-Vorm’s full-color panoramas and Kelman’s concise, penetrating commentaries, each chapter begins with an ordinary object—a pen, a flag, a set of manacles—which then gains extraordinary meaning for its wartime role.
