If You Like Marjane Satrapi Try...

I just turned in the first draft of my readalike article on graphic novelist Marjane Satrapi for the NoveList database. You should look for it to be up in the next 2 weeks or so. Until then, look at this list of readalike authors for Satrapi which I compiled for the BPL website.

As well as my readalike article talking about the appeal of Marjane Satrapi with a list of 5 authors who are similar and why, NoveList also has a book discussion guide on Satrapi's Persepolis ready to go up any day. It is the database's first book discussion guide for a graphic novel!

I have been trying to get my group to read Persepolis for years, maybe now they will be more willing. In the meantime, these 2 new additions to the wonderful offerings already available on NoveList (accessible from most public library websites or in person) should help a lot of readers.
