Announcing the 2020 Readmont
Announcing the 2020 Readmont: The Complete Maus
We are pleased to announce the official launch of Readmont 2020, Piedmont’s “one city, one book” project, now in its ninth year! All Piedmonters are encouraged to read Maus by Art Spiegelman.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus shares the story of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler’s Europe, and his son, a cartoonist coming to terms with his father’s story. The graphic novel form (the Nazis are cats, the Jews mice), shocks us out of any lingering sense of familiarity and succeeds in “drawing us closer to the bleak heart of the Holocaust” (The New York Times).
