@ Busboys and Poets Brookland: John Lewis and Andrew Aydin - March: Book Two

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

 In March: Book Two (Top Shelf, $19.95) the eagerly-awaited second volume of his civil rights trilogy, Congressman John Lewis again collaborates with writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell to put historic events into the immediate context of a graphic memoir. Recounting his personal and political coming-of-age in the segregated South, Lewis picks up the story after the heady days of the Nashville sit-ins, recounting the more dangerous challenges he faced with the Freedom Riders as the group’s nonviolent actions were met with beatings and imprisonment. Courage triumphed over brutality, and the book ends as the twenty-three-year-old Lewis is elected to lead the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and prepares for the 1963 March on Washington.

 

We have reached capacity in the event space, the Pearl Bailey Room. There will be additional seating available in the restaurant, where you will be able to listen and watch via video stream. Space in the restaurant will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

All attendees will be able to be part of the book signing – all welcome!
