Congressman John LewisToo much nonsense today; need something to cut the suck. At the risk of getting shill-y, here’s a blurb from TopShelf Productions for March (Book One) by Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell, forthcoming August 13:

March is a vivid first-hand account of [Congressman John Lewis (GA-5)]’s lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation.
Rooted in Lewis’ personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement.

Book One spans John Lewis’ youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall.

Here’s an interview with Congressman Lewis about the novel on HuffPo (from which I stole the quote for this blentry title); and here’s a BookExpo panel with Congressman Lewis and Jason Mott (author of The Returned).
