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.
Two other graphic novels on the list are Gene Luen Yang‘s American Born Chinese and Jean-Philippe Stassen‘s Deogratias: A Tale of Rwanda. Like Persepolis, each tells the story of a unique culture in undeniably powerful ways.
