The prestigious Los Angeles Times Book Prizes announced today their list of finalists, and March: Book Three (by Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell) is one of five books listed as a finalist for Young Adult Literature.
This is the first LA Times nomination for the acclaimed March trilogy, which has already won the National Book Award as well as a record-breaking four major awards from the American Library Association. Nate Powell was previously an LA Times finalist in 2009 for his book Swallow Me Whole, also in Young Adult Literature. At the time, no graphic novel had been nominated for the prize in any category since Art Spiegelman's Maus.
This year's LA Times Book Prizes will be awarded at the University of Southern California on April 21, 2017, inaugurating the LA Times Festival of Books. Tickets to the ceremony will be on sale starting March 16. For more information, visit http://events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks/book-prizes/.
