Continuing the conversation is the new book Fault Lines in the Constitution – The Graphic Novel. The book is 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… There’s also a new member of the creative team, illustrator Ally Shwed.
