Kwame Alexander 

When: Mon., March 20, 7 p.m. 2017

KWAME ALEXANDERKwame Alexander has already scored by combining basketball with life lessons in his 2015 Newbery Medal-winning young readers novel, The Crossover, a tale of two basketball-loving brothers told entirely in verse. His new book, The Playbook: 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game Called Life, takes this a step further. Using photos by Thai Neave as illustrations, the book features advice from the likes of Serena Williams, Nelson Mandela, Carli Lloyd, and Michelle Obama, along with Alexander's own poetic words and stories geared to recent graduates. This could quite possibly become Oh, the Places You'll Go! for a new generation. Alexander has two local appearances this week, the first Flyleaf-sponsored but taking place at the Chapel Hill Public Library, the second at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh. —Zack Smith
