A Song for Harlem (Scraps of Time Series #3)

Author/Illustrator: Patricia C. McKissack
Ages 9-13
Published Dec 26th, 2008

For Lilly Belle, 'the capital of Black America' is about as far from her hometown of Smyrna, Tennessee, as a twelve-year-old can get-maybe not in miles but certainly in mindset. Then a summer program for gifted young writers opens a whole new world for Lilly Belle. Jazz music in the street lulls her to sleep, her classroom is in a mansion, and the author Zora Neale Hurston is her teacher, helping her understand the power of words, especially her own. Once again, award-winning author Patricia C. McKissack builds an involving story around real events and famous figures.
