The thirteenth episode of Lexivore, the first of season 3, has Renee and Megha starting the year with an episode about Graphic Novels! We discuss the nonfiction graphic novel The Photographer: Into War-Torn Afghanistan With Doctors Without Borders by Lefevre, Guibert, and Lemercier, and touch on several other graphic novels, mentioning some for children, young adults, and adults, including both fiction and nonfiction. We also talk about about graphic novels in general – starting with some of the reasons graphic novels should be considered real reading, who might like them (mostly, anyone) and some of the benefits that come from including graphic novels in collections in libraries and schools, in summer reading recommendations and book discussions, and on one’s own to-read lists.
