OOMMGG! Everyone who lives in Austin needs to read this book! Actually, EVERYONE needs to read this book. Such a beautiful story of Barbara Jordan and her persistence, all because of her great and booming voice. As an African-American girl from Houston she broke many barriers by going to law school, being on the Texas State Senate, and eventually the US Congress. Barbara Jordan fought for civil rights by giving a voice to those who could not speak for themselves.
A wonderful graphic novel that illustrates the life and teachings of Gandhi. I really enjoyed that the story of Gandhi's life is shown not just through his own speaking but through those around him that were influenced by him. When I originally approached this book, I did not expect it to be as captivating as it is, but it truly is a great and quick read. Twenty-eight different illustrators worked on the illustrations and they are AWESOME!
This graphic novel was a lovely, well written, and beautifully drawn memoir of a girl's adventure to visit her family's homelands. Using a guide, old photos, and her grandmother's memoir, she leaves France to explore Algeria where she learns (and teaches the reader) a lot about Algerian political history as well as her family's history and influence on the country.
A graphic novel memoir of growing up in Iraq during the last twenty years. Nothing amazing, but very informational. The drawings though, are superb. Simple but detailed enough for easy understanding.
