"March: Book One,"
the best-selling collaboration between North Little Rock native Nate Powell, Congressman John Lewis and co-writer Andrew Aydin, was one of 2013's best-received graphic novels, and today the publisher revealed the cover for "Book Two," set to be released early next year. According to the publisher, the sequel "will be significantly longer than 'Book One,' taking a step forward into the tumultuous events of 1961-1963 while continuing the framing narrative of President Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009. Major plot lines include the famous journey of the Freedom Riders, imprisonment at Mississippi's Parchman Penitentiary, and young John Lewis' involvement in helping to plan and lead the legendary 1963 March on Washington."

Powell designed the cover, which depicts "(on top) the Freedom Riders' bus set on fire by a white supremacist mob in Anniston, AL, May 14, 1961, and (on bottom) Lewis' fiery speech at the March on Washington, August 28, 1963." Pre-order the book now.

  • Review: "The Incorruptibles" by John Hornor Jacobs

    April 20, 2015
    John Hornor Jacobs doesn’t have much time to sip wine from plastic cups, mingle with the literati, or ponder the state of literary affairs, because his agent sold eight books in a single year last year, and he’s been hustling to get those contracts fulfilled ever since. Jacobs, a Little Rock native and Central High graduate, will return to the Arkansas Literary Festival this month to make up for it, his first time back at the event since 2011. /more/
  • Maya Angelou: Behind the Stamp

    April 13, 2015
    A friend just pointed me to this interesting post by Ian Crouch of the New Yorker about the U.S. Postal Service's brand-new Maya Angelou stamp, which was officially issued last week in a ceremony featuring Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey. The stamp features a quotation — "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song" — that, as the Washington Post pointed out, wasn't actually written by Angelou, but by the poet Joan Walsh Anglund. /more/

    Sims Bar-B-Q — Why had I gone so many years without a visit? How could I forget that spare ribs are richer than back ribs and infinitely better when they have a good bark-like finish and Sims' nonpareil mustard-based sauce, augmented by a healthy squirt of the incendiary house hot sauce (you have to ask). The slaw is fresh. The potato salad, too. And don't forget greens unless you are a vegetarian. Yes, I said unless you are a vegetarian. The pigmeat quotient is high. Don't forget the 40's. Budweiser. None of that craft crapola here. Dinner and plenty of beer for six ran $75. Recommended. — Max Brantley

  • New music from Teenagers, DMP, Liquid Skulls, Yuni Wa and more

    Here's something new from Fayetteville band Teenagers' new EP "Wheezin' The Juice." I'd love to say something sharp and coherent about it, but nothing comes to mind. To free associate instead: San Diego, Rickenbacker, The Strokes, Capri Sun, longboards, mezcal.
