“It's better to read in the library. Sitting at my favorite table by the window reading and listening to the sound of other folks turning pages makes me feel like I'm in a house full of company I don't have to talk to.”
Lesa Cline-Ransome, Finding Langston

“The lady said the Langston who wrote these words is a poet. Seems more like a magician to me, pulling words from my heart I never knew I had" -Langston”
Lesa Cline-Ransome, Finding Langston

Lesa Cline-Ransome, Major Taylor, Champion Cyclist
