Dr. Shawn Robinson Writes his Second Graphic Novel
If you loved the book, Doctor Dyslexia Dude by Dr. Shawn Robinson, you’ll be excited to hear that he recently released his second graphic novel, Doctor Dyslexia Dude! and the Battle for Resilience. This book release turned out to be a bit different than the first one as it was released during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Shawn was committed to keeping the book affordable and accessible for people by lowering the price of the book to $5.95 which in turn helped the sales. He kept busy after the book release with virtual author visits, book readings and planning events for Dyslexia Awareness Month.
This second book is all about being resilient, something Dr. Shawn has learned through his own experience with dyslexia. “No matter where you start or where you are at in the process of reading, the journey of learning to read is not easy but you can achieve greatness by being resilient throughout the process, staying connected and believing in yourself,” this is the message Dr. Shawn hopes to get across in this new book.
October is Dyslexia Awareness Month and Robinson is hoping to get his books in the hands of as many kids as possible. He is selling classroom sets that have 10 copies of each book in them for only $90. And the best part? The proceeds from these sales go to the creation of a scholarship fund that he and his wife, Inshirah Robinson, created to provide tutoring to children in need. They need to sell 450 sets to establish the scholarship and you can help by purchasing one here.
Dr. Shawn hasn’t slowed down since his second book was published. He has already begun working on books three and four with a strong vision of “continuing to use our gifts by writing books that give students hope.” To learn more about Doctor Dyslexia Dude and be the first to know about future books, head to their website or following them on Instagram.
