Graphic Novel on the Civil Rights Movement

March (Book One)

March Book One

By: John Lewis

Genre: YA graphic novel (nonfiction)

Pages: 128

Published: 2013

Read: March

4 out of 5

Often times, one hears that graphic novels are a great method to encourage reluctant readers to enjoy the art of books.  After reading March Book One, I would add that a person who is a passionate (obsessed) reader, but ignorant on certain topics should try a graphic novel. Unfortunately, even though I think history is crucial, important and often part of conversations, I find it rather boring and can’t get engaged in it.  This graphic novel provided me with a quick, easy to understand, fun and entertaining way to learn a bit about our history. If you are like me and need quick background knowledge on the Civil Rights Movement and Congressman John Lewis’s influence I highly recommend this book.
