A Comics Presentation with Nate Powell
Monday November 27, 2017: 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Why are graphic novels so good at capturing history? Find out when Nate Powell stops by AADL for an early afternoon presentation. Best known for his work on the award-winning March series he co-created with Andrew Aydin and Civil Rights legend Congressman John Lewis, Powell will explore many of the unique and immersive storytelling principles used in comics.
Powell’s work also includes You Don’t Say, Any Empire, Swallow Me Whole, The Silence of Our Friends, and The Year of the Beasts. If you’ve ever wanted to tap into the power of graphic novels to explore history, or just wanted a deeper look into why they move us as readers, you won’t want to miss this!
Later that evening, Nate Powell, Andrew Aydin, and Congressman John Lewis will be appearing at Hill Auditorium (825 N. University Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48109) on Monday, November 27 at 7:00 pm. Their free, public, and unticketed keynote talk is co-presented by the International Institute’s Conflict and Peace Initiative and the King-Chavez-Parks Visiting Professors Program as part of the regular Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series.
