This was a gripping historical graphic novel that bounced back and forth between the modern day Congressman Lewis and the younger John Lewis who grew up during segregation and used civil disobedience and peaceful protests to change our country. If you are interested in the Civil Rights movement of the 50s, this would be a great GN to read.

I’m looking forward to part 2, and then the award-winning March, book 3.

Here is a peek inside:

My wife couldn’t believe that I found this interesting, but I sure did!

Pollan explains that corn has taken over our diet—and corn isn’t that healthy. Because of all the corn and things that come from corn and the animals eating corn, the food in our country has changed. Even the farming in our country has changed. And not for the better. Did you know that chickens, pigs, and cows we mostly eat dine on corn? And that they are not supposed to eat corn? Pollan also goes on to show how “good” farms (his opinion) should and do work.

You can listen to Pollan talk about his book and finding on NPR’s Fresh Air.
