The Arkansas Literary Festival scheduled for the end of the month will feature a talk by civil rights figure Rep. John Lewis, who is to discuss his graphic novel memoir.
The festival is to run April 24-27 in Little Rock, and Lewis is scheduled to speak on the closing day.
Lewis, a Democratic congressman from Georgia, took part in sit-ins and freedom rides during the civil rights movement.
His book, "March: Book One," is the first of three planned volumes. Andrew Aydin worked as co-writer with Lewis and it was drawn by North Little Rock artist Nate Powell.
