Children Ages 8+ • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

In his introduction, author Walter Dean Myers explains that his collection of poems about Harlem was inspired by SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY. The poems in HERE IN HARLEM were made to be performed—listeners hear a chorus of voices from different eras and walks of life, full of joy and sorrow, pride and pain as they shed light on the African-American experience. Thirteen talented narrators share their stories, and all of them bring utterly authentic emotions to their vocal performances. The package includes a lovely print book, but listeners won't need to see the words or photographs to be swept up by this beautiful, masterful recording.
