I love graphic novels. The artwork and design can add so much to a reading experience.
One of my favorite genres of graphic novels is autobiographies and memoirs. I find something so intriguing about seeing the way artists represent their own selves and lives in their art. This list includes some autobiographical stories and memoirs from amazingly talented female writers and artists.

Summer time and road trips go hand in hand. There is something about the warm weather that draws us out and makes us want to look for adventure. The magic of the open road and the wide variety of sights, sounds, and smells has made for many great stories. The collection of characters, the big moments, and the quiet in between the miles set the stage for fun, reflection, and the unexpected.
'Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption,' by Bryan Stevenson
Founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, Bryan Stevenson has dedicated his life to defending those who are most in need: the wrongly condemned, the poor, women and children trapped in the justice system.
Stevenson has written an engaging and unforgettable account of his work, beginning with one of his first cases, that of Walter McMillian, a young man sentenced to die for a murder he did not commit. The complexities of this case influenced and set Stevenson on the path of mercy and justice, a path he continues to follow today.
