First you MARCH Then you RUN THE STORY OF JOHN LEWIS CONTINUES From the bestselling, award-winning authors John Lewis and Andrew Aydincomes their next groundbreaking graphic novel-Run: Book One-illustrated by rising star Afua Richardson and featuring contributions by Nate Powell. Told in multiple parts, Run is the next chapter of John Lewis' involvement in the civil rights movement and public life after the March saga. The books bring to the page the true story of John Lewis and many of his colleagues in the movement after the historic success of the Selma campaign. Opening two days after the Voting Rights Act was signed into law, John Lewis and his colleagues are arrested and taken to jail in Americus, Georgia, as the largest hooded Klan march in years takes shape on the courthouse steps. Run: Book One takes readers through the behind-the-scenes struggle to exercise the hard-won rights of people of color to register, vote, and secure equal representation in their elected leaders, all the while facing escalating tensions over continued American involvement in Vietnam.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`On Thursday, the Congressman and his publisher announced that his next book project, to be called Run, will be another multi-part graphic novel, picking up where March left off. "In sharing my story, it is my hope that a new generation will be inspired by Run to actively participate in the democratic process and help build a more perfect union here in America," Lewis said in a statement.' Time Magazine

"Rep. John Lewis's story as a civil-rights leader is so big, even three graphic novels couldn't tell it all..."Run," its first volume slated for release in August, continues the story, following him through the backlash against the civil-rights movement and the tensions that helped splinter it, putting him on the path that would ultimately lead him to Congress." The Wall Street Journal

`...Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), the civil-rights hero who documented some of his story in the acclaimed graphic-novel memoir "March" - and who will continue to chronicle his civil rights fight in the recently announced comic book "Run."'' Washington Post

"Rep. John Lewis' graphic memoir series for young readers, "March," about his civil rights work with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was supposed to be a trilogy. But a new book, "Run," is coming, and more are on the way. Lewis, a civil rights hero, won the National Book Award for "March: Book Three." Abrams ComicArts will publish the next book, "Run: Book One" in August, the publisher said in a news release. Based on Lewis' experiences as a young man in the civil rights movement, "Run" picks up where "March" left off, telling the story of his struggle to lead the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, for which he was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Lewis rejoins his "March" co-authors, writer Andrew Aydin and illustrator Nate Powell, and add a new illustrator in the mix, Afua Richardson. Richardson is known for her work on Marvel's "Black Panther World of Wakanda" and "Genius" by Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman." The Los Angeles Times online
