You’re invited to an evening with poet, educator and bestselling author Kwame Alexander who will appear Friday, April 20 at the Alberta Rose Theatre in northeast Portland for a free event sponsored by the Multnomah County Library.
Alexander’s works have engaged a new generation of readers. His basketball-themed novel-in-verse, The Crossover, won the 2015 Newbery Medal for the year’s most distinguished contribution to literature for young people. His latest work, Rebound (also a novel-in-verse and a prequel to The Crossover), explores the youth of Chuck Bell and his discovery of basketball and jazz over the course of one fateful summer.
Kwame Alexander's visit to the Alberta Rose Theater, 3000 N.E. Alberta St., begins at 6:30 p.m. A book signing precedes it at 6 p.m.
