The Journey to the Book

An account of how Graphic Dead Man Walking came to be.

These posts were originally published as a series of newsletters. They are an invitation  to:

  • Accompany the authors on the journey of transforming Sister Helen Prejean’s classic memoir into graphic form.
  • Explore the writing and illustrating processes, and the power of marrying the two.
  • Venture – virtually – into Angola, the Louisiana State Penitentiary.
  • Hear directly from Sister Helen about her work and her writing.
  • Join a conversation about the use of art for social change.
