Poet and author extradordinaire, Kwame Alexander, speaks off the cuff about love, life and writing. A best-selling author and Newbery Award winner for "The Crossover," Kwame has written 25 books including "Rebound," "Booked," and "Solo." His work is intended for middle grades/young adults, but as a grown-up, I absolutely love his work. (I cried, repeatedly.) He blends sports and poetry in a unique way which provides "instant access to humanity." Hear about Kwame's plans, his work in Ghana, his future books and his thoughts on the NFL's taking a knee.
