MARCH: BOOK THREE is here — and on Rachel Maddow tonight!
August 2, 2016
More than five years after the project was first announced, Top Shelf Productions is honored to reach a new milestone this week with the third and final volume of March, the award-winning and #1 bestselling graphic novel trilogy by Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell.
As the New York Times reports this morning, March has become a groundbreaking phenomenon, reaching classrooms across America and inspiring hundreds of thousands of readers with the story of John Lewis and the power of nonviolence.
Now, in the wake of the March team's recent Eisner Award and "Children's March" at Comic-Con, the trilogy comes to an incredible conclusion with March: Book Three, called by the Washington Post "sublime… an achievement on many fronts."
The early reviews are staggering:
- "March is one of the most important graphic novels ever created — an extraordinary presentation of an extraordinary life, and proof that young people can change the world. I'm stunned by the power of these comics, and grateful that Congressman Lewis's story will enlighten and inspire future generations of readers and leaders." — Raina Telgemeier
- "This memoir's unique eyewitness view of epochal events makes it essential reading for an understanding of those times—and these." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
- "A stirring call to action that’s particularly timely in this election year, and one that will resonate and empower young readers in particular. Essential reading." — Booklist (starred review)
- "Simultaneously epic and intimate... These vivid black-and-white visuals soar." — School Library Journal (starred review)
