Teaching Resources for Art Spiegelman's Maus: A Survivor's Tale
One Book / One Bucks County 2005
About the One Book • One Bucks County project….
The "One Book"
initiative is a nationwide effort to broaden and deepen an appreciation
of literature. The intent is to bring people of all backgrounds and ages
together to foster unity and literacy through sharing books and discussing
the important issues raised by their reading. For the first year of this
program in Bucks County, the Bucks County Free Library has chosen the
graphic novel, Maus: A Survivor's Tale, by Art Spiegelman. During the
period from January through May of 2005, the library and its partners
will be sponsoring discussion groups, film showings, workshops, exhibits,
panel discussions, lectures, and an appearance by Mr. Spiegelman. Copies
of the two-volume set will be available at public libraries and other
public venues so that as many people as possible can have access. Secondary
schools are asked to include the reading and discussion of Maus in their
classrooms where appropriate so Bucks County teens will be active participants
in this project. Class sets of the two-volume set will be available through
the Bucks County Intermediate Unit's Instructional Materials Center. Many
school libraries will also have copies of the books.
