Get inspired by Author Kwame Alexander

Come hear Newbery-Medal winning author, Kwame Alexander, as he tells us about his new book, REBOUND, which is a prequel and companion novel to the action-packed, and critically acclaimed THE CROSSOVER.

In Rebound, before he is Chuck “Da Man” Bell, Charlie is a kid who dreams of basketball glory. In his mind, he can steal, jump, dunk, and make the crowd go wild just like a pro-baller. But when tragedy strikes, Charlie can’t help but make all the wrong moves.

Will a series of missteps keep him benched, or can he learn how to rebound in the follow-up to Alexander’s slam dunk novel, The Crossover? Seven poems are illustrated by Emmy-winning artist and co-creator of the groundbreaking comic series, Brotherman, Dawud Anyabwile.
