The Friends of the Library presents Coffee with Friends with author and graphic novelist, Nate Powell via Zoom. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of this virtual program. Please only register one person per household.
In seven comics-style essays, Nate Powell addresses living in an era of “necessary protest.” Save It for Later: Promises, Parenthood, and the Urgency of Protest is Powell’s personal reflection on witnessing the turmoil during the Trump presidency, and how he explains the events to his children. He reveals the electrifying sense of trust and connection with neighbors
and strangers in protest, and also explores how to equip young people
with tools to best make their own noise as they grow up and help shape
the direction and future of this country.
Nate Powell is also the illustrator for the award-winning graphic-novel series March, written by Congressman John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, chronicling the historic events of non-violent revolution in the civil rights movement.
Nate Powell is the first cartoonist ever to win the National Book Award. An Arkansas native, Powell began self-publishing in 1992 at age 14. His work includes Save It For Later, the March trilogy, Come Again, Two Dead, Any Empire, Swallow Me Whole, and The Silence of Our Friends.
Powell’s work has also received the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, three Eisner Awards, two Ignatz Awards, the Comic-Con International Inkpot Award, four YALSA Great Graphic Novels For Teens selections, and is a two-time finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
