JUST JERRY How Drawing Shaped My Life

by | Read by Scott Pinkney, Gloria Pinkney [Intro.]

Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Scott Pinkney narrates his late father's memoir with such love that listeners will find themselves smiling and not wanting this audiobook to end. In his audiobook Jerry discusses his youth--his family and the people who helped him develop his skill as an artist. He also shares his struggles at school because of dyslexia and the racism he experienced. Despite challenges, Pinkney never wavered from his goal to become an artist. The purpose of this audiobook is to encourage young people to follow their dreams. Scott Pinkney does a poignant job of narrating his father's words in a way listeners will cherish. Jerry's widow, Gloria, provides an introduction that explains Jerry's intention in writing the book. A.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
