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.
