About this title:
Synopsis:

One of the greatest American poets of the twentieth century, Langston Hughes influenced many writers -- including Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker. In this moving and richly detailed portrait, she celebrates the life of the man who fell in love with books at a young age and grew up to write about Black people as he saw them: happy, mad, sad, and beautiful. Illustrated with stunning paintings by Catherine Deeter, this book will introduce a whole new generation to the life and works of an extraordinary man.


About the Author:

Alice Walker won the Pulitzer Prize and an American Book Award for her novel The Color Purple. She has written numerous poems, essays, and short stories, including her most recent book, The Way Forward is With a Broken Heart. Originally published in 1974, Langston Hughes: American Poet was Alice Walker's first book for children. This picture book biography is now back in print with a new author's note and beautiful new illustrations. Ms. Walker lives in Northern California.



This is Catherine Deeter's third collaboration with Alice Walker. Their first two books for children were Finding the Green Stone and To Hell With Dying. Ms. Deeter has also illustrated The Return of Rex and Ethel by Arnold Adoff, Poppy Bear: The Garden Rat Overslept by Ruth E. Saltzman, and her own Seymour Bleu. She lives in Templeton, California.
