00wpierce

Actor Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme, Ray Donovan) signs his new book THE WIND IN THE REEDS at Politics & Prose on Monday, October 5, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

Pierce, star of The Wire and an Emmy-award-winning producer, was born in New Orleans, where his family still lives in the Pontchartrain Park area. His book, co-written with Rod Dreher, a columnist, critic, and author of Crunchy Cons, is a heartfelt memoir that both mourns the losses of Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent civil chaos, and celebrates the spirit that has sustained his family and many others as they’ve worked steadily over the last ten years to rebuild their devastated neighborhoods.

DC – March: Book 2 Signing

March-Book-Two

Congressman John Lewis and co-writer Andrew Aydin appear at Politics & Prose on Sunday, June 7, 2015 at noon to sign MARCH: BOOK 2.

In the eagerly-awaited second volume of his civil rights trilogy, Congressman John Lewis again collaborates with writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell to put historic events into the immediate context of a graphic memoir. Recounting his personal and political coming-of-age in the segregated South, Lewis picks up the story after the heady days of the Nashville sit-ins, recounting the more dangerous challenges he faced with the Freedom Riders as the group’s nonviolent actions were met with beatings and imprisonment. Courage triumphed over brutality, and the book ends as the twenty-three-year-old Lewis is elected to lead the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and prepares for the 1963 March on Washington.

DC – Macbeth Graphic Novel Signing

macbethGareth Hinds appears at Politics & Prose to sign his graphic novel adaptation of Macbeth on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 10:30 am.

Shakespeare’s classic story of dark ambitions, madness, and murder springs to life in a masterful new graphic novel by Gareth Hinds.

Set against the moody backdrop of eleventh-century Scotland, Gareth Hinds’s captivating, richly illustrated interpretation takes readers into the claustrophobic mind of a man driven mad by ambition. An evil seed takes root in the mind of Macbeth, a general in the king’s army, when three witches tell him he will one day be king. At the urging of his wife, he resolves to take the throne by the most direct path: a dagger in the heart of King Duncan. But “blood will have blood,” and when others grow suspicious of his sudden rise to power, is Macbeth prepared to commit more murders to keep the crown?

Gareth Hinds is the acclaimed creator of the graphic novels The Odyssey, Beowulf, Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, and King Lear. He lives near Washington, D.C.
