Since last Thursday, one of the big news stories has been the death of former South African president Nelson Mandela. If you don’t know much about him, he’s worth getting to know. The library has a few biographies of Mandela, the most interesting one being Nelson Mandela: The Authorized Comic Book. It was released in 2005 by the Nelson Mandela foundation. My favorite quote is from Mandela’s introduction to the book, “You know that you are really famous the day that you discover that you have become a comic character.”
Later this week, look for books related to The Hour of Code!
