.About the Author
Kwame Alexander has written 34 books, three of them in a chair next to a fireplace at his neighborhood Panera Bread. He now writes in a writing studio he built a few years ago. It has huge windows, a large painting of John Coltrane, 3000 books, heated floors, a blue couch, and a loft which was Randy's idea.
When he's not writing, Kwame's watching reruns of Everybody Hates Chris with his soon-to-be six feet tall middle school daughter, reading manuscripts for Versify, the publishing company he founded, and travelling to schools and libraries across the globe with his best friend, singer/songwriter/guitarist/Chicken Caesar Salad enthusiast Randy Preston.
And, Kwame loves his job. Kwame's job is to Change the World One Word at a Time. Oh yeah, he also won the Newbery Medal. Whoa!
