Did you know that even The Mayor’s Book Club has read Graphic Novels?
One month The Mayor’s Book Club read Marjane Satrapi‘s Persepolis. The traditional book format – text only – form the majority of the Group’s book selections. As such, the graphic format was a novel departure for many members.
The Club used the Read Your Way Around the World book list to make it’s selection.
Like Persepolis, each tells the story of a unique culture in undeniably powerful ways.
