The Kennedy Center, in collaboration with the University of Maryland, presents a performance recognizing the acclaimed writer. During a career spanning more than 45 years, Walter Dean Myers wrote more than 100 books for children of all ages, including 2 Newbery Honor Books, 3 National Book Award Finalists, and 6 Coretta Scott King Award/Honor–winning books. In 2012, he was appointed the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, serving a two-year term in the position. This theatrical tribute to Mr. Myers combines music, dance, and spoken word with text from some of his most famous books, including excerpts from his picture book We Are America, his gritty teen novel Monster, his memoir Bad Boy, and from Kennedy Center–commissioned adaptations of his work, Harlem and Blues Journey.  This one-night-only celebration of Walter Dean Myers is a fitting tribute to a man who changed the face of young adult literature and touched so many with his eloquent and unflinching portrayal of young African American lives. Part of Page-to-Stage.
