Dearest Walter Dean Myers brings Harlem to life through poems and the lives of people who lived in Harlem in the early 20th Century.

The audio is sooooooo much better than the book. The book has photos, but the audio is read by a variety of narrators. They bring history to life and music adds to the feel of the book. Street sounds and background add to the vibrant time.

Authors like Walter Dean Myers and Ellen Hopkins are helping to bring poetry to readers after generations of teachers and professors scaring readers by never finding the "true" meaning of the poem. Thank goodness for good authors.
