MARCH Adopted by Atlanta Public Schools
October 24, 2016
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the award-winning March graphic novel trilogy is being adopted in seventh-grade English Language Arts courses across Atlanta Public Schools. The series, created by Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell, has already been adopted by major public school districts such as New York City and San Francisco. Now, APS brings the bestselling story of John Lewis to schools throughout Atlanta, a landmark nexus of the civil rights movement as well as Aydin's hometown and Lewis's constituent district.
Up next for March: the authors travel to New York City to accept their Finalist medals from the National Book Awards, and see whether March: Book Three will become the first graphic novel ever to win!
