The Chicago Public School district has issued an ambiguous statement regarding the present and future availability of Marjane Satrapi’s PERSEPOLIS to students. PERSEPOLIS is a coming of age memoir about a girl in her early teens. The book has been read and taught in school districts across the country, without caveat or condition. In addition, Marjane has met with students across the country, including students in Chicago. The fact that Chicago is trying to limit this book’s use in classrooms and curriculums, suggesting teachers need guidance before they can discuss it, smacks of censorship.
Calling All Artists! Don’t forget, the deadline for our contest is Friday!
Here’s the idea: Draw a representation of the home you grew up in, but in the style of Chris Ware’s BUILDING STORIES. Submissions are due Friday, March 1st. The winner’s art will be posted on Friday, March 8th—on our Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
Best of luck, and keep your artwork coming in!
Comics/graphic novels are fit for all ages. Check out PEANUT, published by Random House Children’s Books, a great read for the kiddies!
In PEANUT, a new graphic novel by Ayun Halliday (creator of the East Village Inky zine)and illustrated by Paul Hoppe (of Rabid Rabbit comic art magazine), Sadie, a high school student, conjures up a peanut allergy to snag some friends when she transfers to Plainfield High—of course, she doesn’t think it through and the ramifications are far more wide reaching than she had ever anticipated.
Publishers Weekly gave the novel a STARRED review, stating that “it’s not easy being both hip and life- affirming, but this team has the secret formula.”
