LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - 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.

The talk will be held at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center.

Other notable writers taking part in the festival are Catherine Coulter, Rhett Miller and Mary Roach.
