FPL welcomes Nate Powell, National Book Award-winning artist of the "March" trilogy!

Little Rock native Nate Powell will return to Fayetteville Public Library to discuss his upcoming graphic novel, Fall Through. Nate will give a short talk accompanied by a slideshow, focusing on Fall Through and its Arkansas context, as well as its relationship to his other books in this fictional Arkansas universe. Additionally, Nate will be talking about the Arkansas punk scene of the 1990s and its relationship to the larger underground network at the time. Attendees will immerse themselves in the world of comics and storytelling by hearing about how Nate's approach to writing characters and stories has evolved over the past decade of working on his books.
