Tidewater Reads 2018

April 2018 is all about Kwame Alexander,  poet, educator, and the New York Times Bestselling author of 24 books.

Engage with your community by reading and talking about the same books, enjoying events sponsored by Tidewater Reads libraries and organizations, and meeting a well-known author. The great thing about Kwame Alexander is that he's written books for a wide range of ages, from picture books to Young Adult Novels, so the whole family can get involved.
