In 1999, Greg Michie wrote a memoir of his teaching experiences in Chicago public schools called Holler If You Hear Me. Over the next two decades, the book went on to become one of the most enduring teacher memoirs of our time. This past year, for the book's 20th anniversary, Michie joined with illustrator Ryan Alexander-Tanner and a group of talented young Chicago artists to create a comic adaptation of Holler--a brilliant and lively reimagining of the original text.
Gregory Michie teaches 7th- and 8th-graders in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood. He is the author, most recently, of Same as It Never Was: Notes on a Teacher's Return to the Classroom. Ryan Alexander-Tanner is an art teacher, illustrator, and coauthor (with William Ayers) of To Teach: The Journey, in Comics.
