The American Library Association announced this week that “March: Book One” has been named a Coretta Scott King Honor Book. “March,” the first graphic novel in a trilogy on Civil Rights hero Congressman John Lewis, was illustrated by North Little Rock native Nate Powell, who worked closely with Lewis and co-author Andrew Aydin on the project. The honor marks only the second time that the Coretta Scott King committee has selected a graphic novel. “March” has been on the New York Times bestseller list for more than 20 weeks.
