Bumping this back up to the top now that it’s official, Tumblr.
We’ll have legendary civil rights leader and current Congressman, John Lewis with us on Saturday at SPX 2013. He’ll be at the Top Shelf table, participating in programming - the whole thing. Walking, talking, history among us.
We’ve got many wonderful guests still to announce - and a host of great creators already confirmed but this one… This one is special.
I hope you agree.
So this is happening…! Couldn’t be prouder of our little show. Many thanks to Congressman Lewis, his staff, and the uberfine folks at Top Shelf for making this possible.
The Small Press Expo is pleased to announce a civil rights icon, Congressman John Lewis, as a special guest at SPX 2013 this fall.
Widely recognized as one of the most important leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement, John Lewis has represented Georgia’s 5th congressional district since 1987.
We’re beyond honored to have a bona fide American hero joining us at SPX, much less our first sitting member of Congress.
Congressman Lewis will be promoting his first graphic novel, March (Book One), to published by Top Shelf in mid-August 2013.
March was co-written with Andrew Aydin and drawn by the award-winning graphic novelist Nate Powell.
