Kwame Alexander and Randy Preston at Boswell for Rebound
Boswell presents an evening with Kwame Alexander, winner of the Pat Conroy Legacy Award, and author of the just-released Rebound, a dynamic novel in verse. For this event, Alexander will be joined once again by his musical collaborator, Randy Preston. This event is cosponsored by Stillwaters Collective.
Before Josh and Jordan Bell, the heroes of The Crossover, were streaking up and down the court, their father was learning his own moves. In this prequel to Newbery Medal winner The Crossover, Chuck Bell takes center stage, as readers get a glimpse of his childhood and how he became the jazz music worshiping, basketball star his sons look up to.
A novel in verse with all the impact and rhythm readers have come to expect from Kwame Alexander, Rebound will go back in time to visit the childhood of Chuck "Da Man" Bell during one pivotal summer when young Charlie is sent to stay with his grandparents where he discovers basketball and learns more about his family's past.
Kwame Alexander will be accompanied at this event by musician Randy Preston. As anyone can attest who has been to an Alexander event, this evening is not to be missed!
This event is free, but registration is requested. If we reach capacity, priority will be given to folks who have registered.
