This inspirational audiobook for middle-grade listeners
gracefully explores what life was like for African Americans after
WWII and celebrates the magic of books. Narrator Dion Graham gives
an immersive performance, reading with a light Southern drawl. In
1943, 11-year-old Langston and his father move from Alabama to
Chicago as part of the Great Migration, and Langston is having a
hard time adjusting. By spending time at the George Cleveland Hall
branch of the Chicago Public Library, where African-American heroes
of literature are celebrated, Langston finds solace and discovers a
love of reading. Published by Dreamscape.
