Dreams From My Father


I made this cartoon flowchart for the Kansas State Library's "Kansas Reads" program. Each year a book is selected and everyone is encouraged to read it and participate in book discussion groups and other related events. This year's selection is Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father, the memoir he wrote at age 30. Of course, it's a controversial selection for a very Red State, so the committee (including my former boss at the Salina Public Library, Nancy Jo) hoped to defuse a little of the controversy by using some comic-based promotional materials. This is what I came up with. (Lawrence-based cartoonist Dale Martin also drew a cartoon.)
