Celeste wants to give her mother something special — but what? As she drifts off to sleep, Celeste is swept away. Up, up, into the sky, where the sun, the moon, and the stars are eagerly awaiting her arrival. How grand! They receive her with such kindness that Celeste positively sparkles with delight. And on her way home, it comes to her: the perfect gift. Chosen with care and wrapped with love, it’s just what Celeste was hoping to find.

OR – March: Book Two Signing

March-Book-Two

Congressman John Lewis and co-writer Andrew Aydin appear at Powell’s Books on Saturday June 27, 2015 at 2:00 pm!

Congressman John Lewis, an American icon and one of the key figures of the civil rights movement, continues his award-winning graphic novel trilogy, inspired by a 1950s comic book that helped prepare his own generation to join the struggle. March: Book Two (Top Shelf), co-written by Andrew Aydin (with artist Nate Powell), brings the lessons of history to vivid life for a new generation, urgently relevant for today’s world. After the success of the Nashville sit-in campaign, Lewis is more committed than ever to changing the world through nonviolence — but as he and his fellow Freedom Riders board a bus into the vicious heart of the Deep South, they will be tested like never before.

SuperMutant Magic Academy paints a teenage world that is moody and ennui-filled but also wry and irreverent: the SuperMutant Magic Academy is a prep-school for mutants and witches but their paranormal abilities take a back seat to everyday teen concerns.
