About the Author

During my travels I meet many talented young writers and illustrators. On this new page I will share some of the works by the wonderful, talented students I have been lucky enough to meet.

In the words of Afrika Brown

By the way I may look upon myself today,
may reflect against me toward my future.
And if, in the future, I become aomeone rich
with everything I want,
it's because it's the way I act now.
And sometimes I know it may seem hard,
but you must stick to it because,what's the point of giving up?
So, if you want to become something, it all starts here.

"Yo, Alejandro"
Written by Alejandro Gac-Artigas

This is an amazing first person account of a young Latino boy struggling through life. It was written by Alejandro before the age of 12 and contains some rich language and a very clear and strong writing style.

Alejandro tells of learning English and adjusting to life in America and the trials he had along the way.

I was lucky enough to meet this young author during the Booksmart events at Brookdale Community College in November 2001. For one so young, he has a brilliant command of the language and a very powerful and peaceful outlook on the world.

Recommended reading for 5th through 7th grades.
