Book Trailer Thursday: March: Books One and Two

Though not a trailer, today’s timely video will no doubt generate interest in March: Book One and Book Two by Congressman John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, and illustrated by Nate Powell. In this clip from his Daily Show appearance earlier this week, Lewis talks to Jon Stewart about his experiences as a Freedom Rider 50 years ago, and his inspiration to tell his history as a graphic novel, “to make it real, to make it plain.” (Do catch up with part one of the interview, too.)

“An important chronicle made accessible both by Powell’s expert artwork and Lewis and Aydin’s compelling, down-to-earth writing, this is a must-read,” Sarah Hunter wrote in her review of Book Two. Read her interview with Lewis and his co-authors here.
