Description:

Slim SOFT COVER book signed by the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Gwendolyn Brooks. We bought it from the estate of a long-time librarian at the University of Akron who must have met Brooks in 2000 and had her sign the much earlier book at that time. The inscription reads, "For -----, Sincerely, Gwendolyn Brooks, August 24, 2000". The inscription was written just months before Brooks died on December 3, 2000 in her hometown of Chicago.The book measures 7-1/2" tall and 10" across and is clean as a whistle inside and out with no names or writing other than that of the poet. The exuberant art, which lends much zest to the poem, was rendered by Timothy Jones. The poem speaks to both children and the child in all adults who needs reminding of the importance of self-acceptance. A treasure by the first African American to win the Pulitzer -- and in 1950 too! Size: Oblong. Bookseller Inventory #
