I'm leaving for this now - The Silence of Our Friends is my favorite graphic novel of 2012 so far.
February 24 - Mark Long Signing
Mark Long, founder of the video game company Zombie Studios, will be at our Vienna store February 24, from 6:00 to 7:30. His new book is The Silence of Our Friends, a really powerful book about the civil rights movement in Texas in the 1960s and two families, one black and one white, who become friends and get caught up in the middle of everything. Mark Long based the story on the true events that took place when he was a kid, and one of the main characters is based on his father, a TV journalist in Houston.
