The 2015-16 MUSE Theme Year on Community

The MUSE Project is pleased to announce our 2015-16 Theme Year on Community. We were honored to welcome our keynote guests, Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell, to campus on November 10, 2015.

A recording of the event can be viewed above.

Congressman Lewis, Mr. Aydin, and Mr. Powell will discuss their ongoing graphic novel project titled March, which tells the story of Congressman Lewis’ upbringing in the tumultuous South during the 1950s and 60s and his subsequent involvement in the civil rights movement. A book signing will follow the keynote event.

More information about our Congressman Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell can be found below.

The University of Utah MUSE Project has chosen the graphic novel March, Books 1 and 2, as our centerpiece texts of our Theme Year on Community.  March is a #1 New York Times and Washington Post bestseller, a Coretta Scott King Honor Book, winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award (Special Recognition), an ALA Notable Book, one of YALSA’s Outstanding Books for the College Bound, and one of Reader’s Digest’s Graphic Novels Every Grown-Up Should Read.
