December 13, 2022

Nation­al Book Award win­ner Neal Shus­ter­man and acclaimed illus­tra­tor Andrés Vera Martínez present a graph­ic nov­el explor­ing the Holo­caust through sur­re­al visions and a tex­tured can­vas of hero­ism and hope.

Courage to Dream plunges read­ers into the Holo­caust — one of the great­est atroc­i­ties in human his­to­ry — delv­ing into the core of what it means to face the extinc­tion of every­thing and every­one you hold dear.

This grip­ping, mul­ti­fac­eted tapes­try is woven from Jew­ish folk­lore and cul­tur­al his­to­ry. Five inter­lock­ing nar­ra­tives explore one com­mon sto­ry — the tra­di­tion of resis­tance and uplift. Neal Shus­ter­man and Andrés Vera Martínez are inter­na­tion­al­ly renowned cre­ators who have col­lab­o­rat­ed on a mas­ter­work that encour­ages the com­pas­sion­ate, bold reach­ing for a dream.
