Reading into History: An Incredible August Book Wrap

 

Walter Dean Myers answers questions from Reading Into History Book Club members

 

Hello families! The Reading into History book club had a fantastic Book Wrap event for Harlem Summer this past Wednesday. About 50 young historians, parents, teachers, librarians and Myers fans came to discuss the book, ask Mr. Myers questions, and see photographs of Harlem by Camilo Jose Vergara. Mr. Myers brought along his National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature medal and a reader brought an issue of The Crisis from 1949! It was an unforgettable afternoon. Thank you to everyone who came!
