"Alright everyone, gather round, this is the true-life adventure of Wallace Henry Thurman and me."
Third-grader Henry is searching for a topic for his book report in the most magical place he knows: the school library. Suddenly, a glowing book flies off the shelf and onto the floor. It bursts open and out pops Wallace Henry Thurman, the Heart of the Harlem Renaissance, who was once a third-grader in Salt Lake City!
A tale of getting to know yourself, getting to know your history, and making a new friend.
Henry and Me is our gift to the library at every public elementary school in Utah in observance of Black History Month, February 2024.
Study guide and videobook coming January 2024.
