Call #: xBiog Wilso.A Bryan.J
“If you can read, you can do anything – you can BE anything.” This is what August Wilson’s mother told him as a child in Pittsburgh. Growing up, he spent hours in the library and books, filling his mind with their words and hope. While he faced harassment and discrimination in school, he never lost his love of learning and language. This picture book biography of the renowned playwright is written in captivating verse and includes a timeline and bibliography in the back. It is as much a gift to lovers of literature and libraries as it is a story of the Pulitzer Prize-winner’s coming-of-age. Recommended for ages 6-9 years.
