From Nate Powell, the National Book Awardâwinning artist of March, a collection of graphic nonfiction essays about living in a new era of necessary protestânow with sixteen pages of new material In seven interwoven comics essays, author and illustrator Nate Powell addresses living in an era of what he calls ânecessary protest.â Save It for Later: Promises, Parenthood, and the Urgency of Protest is Powellâs reflection on witnessing the collapse of discourse in real-time while illustrating the award-winning trilogy March by Congressman John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, this generationâs preeminent historical account of nonviolent revolution in the civil rights movement. Powell highlights both the danger of normalized paramilitary symbols in consumer pop cultureÂ and the roles we play individually as we interact with our communities, families, and society at large. Â Â Â Each essay tracks Powellâs journey from the night of the electionâpromising his four-year-old daughter that Trump will never winâto the reality of the authoritarian presidency, protesting the administrationâs policies, and navigating the complications of teaching his children how to raise their own voices in a world that is becoming increasingly dangerous and more and more polarized. While six of the seven essays are new, unpublished work, Powell has also included âAbout Face,â a comics essay first published by Popula Online that swiftly went viral and inspired him to write Save It for Later. The seventh and final essay was written after the 2020 presidential election, and examines theÂ outcome of that contest in relation to the events of the last four years, with a particular focus on the COVID-19 pandemic and global protests in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. The updated paperback comes out just in time for the 2022 midterm electionsÂ and includes bonus content featuring a conversation between Powell andÂ Derf Backderf, the New York Timesâbestselling author of My Friend Dahmer and Kent State, where they discussÂ the militarization of civilian spaces and the aftermath of the January 6th insurrection. Â Â Â As Powell moves between subjective and objective experiences raising his childrenâdepicted in their childhood innocence as imaginary anthropomorphic animalsâhe reveals the electrifying sense of trust and connection with neighbors and strangers in protest. He also explores how to equip young people with tools to best make their own noise as they grow up and help shape the direction and future of this country.
