The Graphic Novel - I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001 by Lauren Tarshis
In the I Survived prose series by Lauren Tarshis, young readers are given the chance to better understand nonfiction tragedies thanks to well-researched historical fiction narratives that give a kid’s eye view of surviving world-shaking events. The latest (and fourth) in the series to be adapted into a graphic novel from Scholastic Graphix is I Survived: The Attacks of September 11, 2001, illustrated by Corey Egbert and with a script by Georgia Ball. Lauren Tarshis talked with Heidi Holtan and John Bauer on the Thursday Morning Show.
We had this feedback from Tracy, the children's librarian at the Grand Rapids Area Library.
We just unpacked the latest I Survived, which will be on the shelves of Your Grand Rapids Area Library early next week. We also have the graphic novels. You can also pick up a copy of the 9/11 book, or put one on hold. Kudos to Ms. Tarshis for writing a series that kids seek out, every day. She has brought something special to the world of Children's Literature. Thanks for a great interview!
