Lawmakers are in for an early holiday gift: the publisher behind the first graphic novel penned by a member of Congress is sending a digital copy to each of Rep. John Lewis’s (D-Ga.) colleagues.
March: Book One was released to lots of fanfare in August and topped The New York Times bestseller list. It details the 73-year-old congressman and civil rights leader’s memories of the March on Washington and the fight for equality in the 1960s.
The digital edition of the illustrated story typically costs $10. The second and third volumes of the March trilogy are due out in 2014 and 2015.
