P&P Live! Nate Powell | SAVE IT FOR LATER with Eleanor Davis
April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
As he was completing his work on the award-winning trilogy March, artist Nate Powell watched in dismay as the world around him fell apart. In this graphic memoir, Powell details his family’s experiences during the four year stretch between Trump’s election and the COVID-19 outbreak in heartbreaking detail, focusing on his effort to communicate complex issues like institutionalized racism and police brutality to his two young daughters. In an intimate tone, Powell shares their poignant interactions as he encourages them to stand up for what is right. Powell’s impassioned call to action is a relevant message for our times. Illustrator Eleanor Davis will be in conversation with Powell to discuss protest and parenthood, and how to equip young people with tools to make their own noise as they grow up and help shape the direction and future of this country.
