Best of the National Book Festival: Kadir Nelson, 2011

Our ongoing celebration of the Library of Congress National Book Festival continues with writer and illustrator Kadir Nelson discussing his young-adult book “Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans” on the Teens stage at the 2011 Festival. This post includes prompts for writing and thinking that young readers, families and teachers can use to explore the author and the author’s work—recommended for ages 8-12.
