Lesa Cline-Ransome and James Ransome - Overground Railroad and Leaving Lymon — at Takoma Park Library MD

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 7:00pm

Join us for an evening with Lesa Cline-Ransome and James E. Ransome—the award-winning husband and wife team behind Before She was Harriet, Benny Goodman & Teddy Wilson and Just a Lucky So and So—for a discussion of two moving books about the Great Migration. One, a picture book in verse, follows a young girl on a train journey from North Carolina to New York City. Perceptive poems illustrate the changing landscape as she peers out the window. The other, a companion novel to the critically acclaimed Finding Langston, is from the perspective of a boy who leaves his grandparents in Vicksburg, Mississippi for two faraway Northern cities. Together, these poignant, engaging works may spark discussion about topics including racism, bullying, and mass incarceration. Ages 4-8; Ages 8-12.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
