Summary

A celebration of August Wilson's journey from a child in Pittsburgh to one of America's greatest playwrights

August Wilson (1945-2005) was a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright who had a particular talent for capturing the authentic, everyday voice of black Americans. As a child, he read off the soup cans and cereal boxes in the pantry, and when his mother brought him to the library, his whole world opened up. After facing intense prejudice at school from both students and some teachers, August dropped out. However, he continued reading and educating himself independently. He felt that if he could read about it, then he could teach himself anything and accomplish anything. Like many of his plays, Feed Your Mindis told in two acts, revealing how Wilson grew up to be one of the most influential American playwrights. The book includes an author's note, a timeline of August Wilson's life, a list of Wilson's plays, and a bibliography.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Bryant and Chapman capture the life of August Wilson here through biographical free-verse poems that compellingly trace key moments in Wilson's development into a world-renowned poet and playwright. Divided into two acts, the book reveals how Wilson's early love of books ignited a love of language and a passion for reading and writing about the human experience. After dropping out of high school due to mistreatment and racial bullying, Wilson immersed himself in the works of Black writers, whose ranks he would eventually join. The mixed-media illustrations implement retro colors and frequently float letters or images through the scenes to reflect Wilson's constant gleaning of his surroundings for inspiration. This is an excellent addition to collections on Black writers of the 1960s and 1970s. Thorough back matter features an author's note and detailed time line, as well as source notes for the many quotes that are integrated into the poems. Readers will walk away with an appreciation of why Wilson is still celebrated as one of the most pivotal playwrights of his time.--Tiffany Flowers Copyright 2019 Booklist"
