South Words: Nate Powell, Van Jensen

By Stephanie Smittle

TUESDAY 11/19. 6:30 p.m. CALS Ron Robinson Theater. Free.

Nate Powell
Free

When you inaugurate your new author series with none other than Sarah M. Broom (“The Yellow House”), as Oxford American did with “South Words,” you’re going to need a brilliant follow-up. Enter National Book Award winner and Little Rock native Nate Powell, whose collaboration with Andrew Aydin and U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) on the “March” trilogy looks vividly and unblinkingly at the civil rights movement. Powell’s latest, “Two Dead,” is a graphic novel noir set in Little Rock in the 1940s, and a collaboration with author Van Jensen, a former crime reporter at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Jay Jennings, author of “Carry the Rock,” moderates the discussion. Get details at oxfordamerican.org/events.
