Author Kwame Alexander Presents "Solo"

Event date: 
Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Whenever author and Newbery Award winner Kwame Alexander releases a new book, young readers celebrate. His newest, called "Solo," is a young adult novel in poetic verse that introduces main character Blade Morrison, whose deep interest in music is revealed through rhythms and riffs expressed in the written word. Kwame and co-author Mary Rand Hess appear together at Bank Street College of Education's Tabas Auditorium on Thursday, August 3 at 4:30 p.m. to read excerpts from "Solo" and to introduce "Excuse Me," an original song and music video from the book.
