Illinois Libraries Present: Kwame Alexander, Tweens, Teens, and Adults
Join us for a virtual evening of inspiration and conversation with best-selling and award-winning children’s and young adult author and poet, Kwame Alexander, for an Illinois Libraries Present event for young people and their families.
Kwame will share ways to say yes to your story and persist in the face of rejection as he shares his own publishing journey. As a creator of more than 36 books, Kwame will energize our community to harness the power of words and storytelling for change!
This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering premier events. ILP is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). ILP is committed to inclusion and accessibility.
