Kwame Alexander Author Event
King's Books, in partnership with Tacoma Public School libraries and Urban Grace, welcomes New York Times bestselling author Kwame Alexander to talk about and sign copies of his new book SWING! Best friends Walt and Noah decide to use their voices to grow more good in the world, but first they've got to find cool. Books will be for sale at the event, but pre-order your copy here: kingsbookstore.com/book/9780310761914

Kwame Alexander is a poet, educator, and the bestselling author of 28 books, including SWING, SOLO, and REBOUND, the follow-up to his, Newberry medal-winning novel, THE CROSSOVER. A regular contributor to NPR's Morning Edition, Kwame is the recipient of numerous awards, including The Coretta Scott King Author Honor, The Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Prize, Three NAACP Image Award Nominations, and the 2017 Inaugural Pat Conroy Legacy Award. He believes that poetry can change the world, and he uses it to inspire and empower young people around the world through THE WRITE THING, his K-12 Writing Workshop. The 2018 NEA Read Across America Ambassador, Kwame is the founder of VERSIFY, an imprint of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and the host and producer of the literary variety/talk show, Bookish, which airs on Facebook Watch. He's led cultural exchange delegations to Brazil, Italy, Singapore, and Ghana, where he built the Barbara E. Alexander Memorial Library and Health Clinic, as a part of LEAP for Ghana, an international literacy program he co-founded.
