A wonderful picture book introduction to a legendary American writer
It’s a special day when a little girl and her father go to visit the house where the great poet Langston Hughes lived—especially when the little girl is a poet herself!
This rhythmic tale is a wonderful introduction to the work and world of Langston Hughes, who was a central figure of the Harlem Renaissance and an American cultural hero.
Willie Perdomo was raised eight blocks away from Langston Hughes’s house. Visiting Langston is his first book for children. He lives in New York.
Bryan Collier grew up in Pokomoke City, Maryland, where he began painting at the age of fifteen. Mr. Collier now lives in Harlem in New York City.
