Since 2001, The Comic Book Project at Columbia University in New York City has brought comic book writing to K-12 schools. Obviously, reading to kids can make far more advanced books accessible to a younger set. There are many graphic novels that touch on historic events and serious literary themes. I’d read eagerly, hoping no one could see my screen.
