The Best of Our Knowledge #1565 "Constitutional Comics"

Sep 17, 2020

A few years back, we spoke to the authors of a book aimed at young people called “Fault Lines in the Constitution – The Framers, their Fights and the Flaws that Affect Us Today” that pointed out the faults in the constitution with stories and examples from current and historical events. An updated edition of the book came out last year in paperback. And now there is Faultlines in the Constitution – The Graphic Novel, written by Cynthia Levinson, a writer of non-fiction for young readers…and Sandy Levinson, a professor of Law at the University of Texas in Austin. And now there’s a new member of the creative team, illustrator Ally Shwed.

You can find the author's blog about the constitution HERE.

We’ll also hear how recruiters are hoping to use Tom Cruise, and spend an Academic Minute with some vacation fun and travel.
