Visiting Langston (Paperback)
A wonderful picture book introduction to a legendary American writer
It's a special day when a little girl and her father go to visit the house where the great poet Langston Hughes lived—especially when the little girl is a poet herself!
This rhythmic tale is a wonderful introduction to the work and world of Langston Hughes, who was a central figure of the Harlem Renaissance and an American cultural hero.
Willie Perdomo was raised eight blocks away from Langston Hughes's house. Mr. Perdomo's first book, Where a Nickel Costs a Dime, was selected by the ALA as a Popular Paperback for Young Adults. Visiting Langston is his first book for children.
