Praise For…

"Bryant’s poetic descriptions effectively chronicle Wilson’s artistic journey. . . This empathetic and informative study of August Wilson’s early years explores the complexities of the black experience in America. A book that will resonate not only with bookworms and fans of the playwright but with black children wishing to see themselves reflected in the world around them."

— School Library Journal

"Wilson’s passion for words and attention to the world around him emerge in Bryant’s lyrical telling." 

— Publishers Weekly


"Chapman’s mixed-media illustrations are sophisticated and engrossing, packed with visual metaphors. . . reading aloud for pure pleasure would be a meaningful tribute to Wilson’s legacy." 

— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
