The Indiana Center for the Book at the Indiana State Library and the Arkansas Center for the Book at the Arkansas State Library are partnering to present a program featuring Nate Powell on the theme “The Graphic Arts and the Reading Experience.”

Kennedy Book Award, three Eisner Awards, two Ignatz Awards, four YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Teens selections and two Los Angeles Times Book Prize finalist selections.
