In his own words...

As a boy, Walter Dean Myers was quick-tempered and physically strong, always ready for a fight. He also read voraciously-he would check out books from the library and carry them home, hidden in brown paper bags in order to avoid other boys' teasing. He aspired to be a writer. But growing up in a poor family in Harlem, his hope for a successful future diminished as he came to realize fully the class and racial struggles that surrounded him. He began to doubt himself and the values that he had always relied on, attending high school less and less, turning to the streets and his books for comfort.

In a memoir that is gripping, funny, and ultimately unforgettable, Walter Dean Myers travels back to his roots in the magical world of Harlem during the 1940s and 1950s. Here is the story of one of the strongest voices in young people's literature today.

"The combination of biography and Brooks' own poems makes for a strong, useful, and beautiful text . . . A solid introduction to a brilliant writer"--Kirkus. Acclaimed writer Alice Faye Duncan tells the story of poet Gwendolyn Brooks, the first Black author to win the Pulitzer Prize. SING a song for Gwendolyn Brooks. Sing it loud--a Chicago blues. With a voice both wise and witty, Gwendolyn Brooks crafted poems that captured the urban Black experience and the role of women in society. She grew up on the South Side of Chicago, reading and writing constantly from a young age, her talent lovingly nurtured by her parents. Brooks ultimately published 20 books of poetry, two autobiographies, and one novel. Alice Faye Duncan has created her own song to celebrate Gwendolyn's life and work, illuminating the tireless struggle of revision and the sweet reward of success.

THE GREAT SUCCESSOR KIM JONG-UN - A POLITICAL CARTOON An epic comic of the Dark Kingdom and the passing of power to a third Kim. WHERE THERE IS TYRANNY THERE IS RESISTANCE! THE 3RD GENERATION SUCCESSOR WILL NOT ESCAPE THE RESISTANCE OF HIS PEOPLE! THE GREAT SUCCESSOR details the realities of the recent succession of Kim Jong-Un as leader of the DPRK. From propaganda engines to "trusted" news sources, many of us will never know what really goes on in the Dark Kingdom. THE GREAT SUCCESSOR provides a rare glimpse at the new face (and belly) of leadership in the North. What is in store for the future of North Korea? Only time will tell, but The Great Successor provides some insight to the background of the young new leader of the most secretive dictatorship on earth. At only thirty, Kim Jong Eun could have a long future as a head of state, he could tow the line of his father's Military First Philosophy to the bitter end (and invariable ruin of the state) or he could herald a new beginning of reform (in whatever form it will take), and lead his people out of the dark...THE GREAT SUCCESSOR hopes to answer: Who is this third Kim? Where did he come from? Will he make change? Will he attack? Should we be afraid of him?

If you can't bring the man to the books, bring the books to the man. Mary Lemist Titcomb (1852-1932) was always looking for ways to improve her library. As librarian at the Washington County Free Library in Maryland, Titcomb was concerned that the library was not reaching all the people it could. She was determined that everyone should have access to the library-not just adults and those who lived in town. Realizing its limitations and inability to reach the county's 25,000 rural residents, including farmers and their families, Titcomb set about to change the library system forever with the introduction of book-deposit stations throughout the country, a children's room in the library, and her most revolutionary idea of all-a horse-drawn Book Wagon. Soon book wagons were appearing in other parts of the country, and by 1922, the book wagon idea had received widespread support. The bookmobile was born!
