The National Book Awards were handed out on Wednesday night. John Lewis' final entry into his graphic memoir, March: Book Three, written with Andrew Aydin and illustrated by Nate Powell, won the 2016 National Book Award for Young People's Literature.
Here is the School Library Journal article about the book, the prize, the event.
The book is stunning in its timeliness. We cannot forget the fight for equal rights and equal respect. And we must continue to uphold the American ideal that all people are created equal. That's ALL - as in Every Single Person.
As the banner at my place of worship says, "Love Thy Neighbor - No Exceptions".
PS. The winner, in books for grown-ups, was The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. Pay attention, readers.
