Lerner Publishing Group is based out of downtown Minneapolis, in the North Loop neighborhood. The murder of George Floyd just a few miles from our headquarters hit very close to home, and to our hearts, last summer. We immediately moved up the publication date of Into the Streets: A Young Person’s Visual History of Protest in the United States. We also began planning an addition for the next printing that would cover the protests that broke out across the country in response. That addition is now available in print copies, as well as for download here for those who bought the first edition.
While it’s difficult for a printed book to stay up to date on current events (for example: see January 6, 2021), we felt compelled to do what we could to keep this important title as fresh as possible for our teen readers.
