That GIECO commercial about the person living under a rock reminded me of myself when a teacher introduced me to author Walter Dean Myers. I was embarrassed to admit that I had not read any of his books. Author of over 100 books, Myers is followed by many young adults and adults.
After hearing this StoryCorps clip of Myers, I picked up his book Slam! Take a minute to listen to this powerful StoryCorps piece and get to know the author better. Perfect for Father's Day.
