Acclaimed writer Walter Dean Myers celebrates the people of Harlem with these powerful and soulful first-person poems in the voices of the residents who make up the legendary neighborhood: basketball players, teachers, mail carriers, jazz artists, maids, veterans, nannies, students, and more. Exhilarating and electric, these poems capture the energy and resilience of a neighborhood and a people.

About the Author:

Walter Dean Myers (1937 - 2014) was born in Martinsburg, West Virginia. He was one of the premier authors of books for children, and received numerous awards including the Michael L. Printz award and the Coretta Scott King Award.

From AudioFile:

In his introduction, author Walter Dean Myers explains that his collection of poems about Harlem was inspired by SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY. The poems in HERE IN HARLEM were made to be performed--listeners hear a chorus of voices from different eras and walks of life, full of joy and sorrow, pride and pain as they shed light on the African-American experience. Thirteen talented narrators share their stories, and all of them bring utterly authentic emotions to their vocal performances. The package includes a lovely print book, but listeners won't need to see the words or photographs to be swept up by this beautiful, masterful recording. J.M.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

Book Description Holiday House, United States, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. These fifty-four poems, all in different voices but written by one hand, do sing. They make a joyful noise as the author honors the people-the nurses, students, soldiers, and ministers-of his beloved hometown, Harlem. Worship with Deacon Allen, who loves a shouting church, and study with Lois Smith, who wants a school named after me. Don t get taken by Sweet Sam DuPree, who conned a shark right outta his fin. And never turn your back on Delia Pierce, who claims she ain t the kind to talk behind nobody s back while doing precisely that-with panache. Inspired by Edgar Lee Masters s classic Spoon River Anthology, Walter Dean Myers celebrates the voices and aspirations of the residents of another American town, one that lies between two rivers on the north side of an island called Manhattan.
