DMA Arts & Letters Live: Kwame Alexander

Dallas Museum of Art

Poet, educator, and New York Times bestselling author Kwame Alexander kicks off summer reading with his latest book, The Playbook: 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game Called Life. A strategy guide written with middle-grade readers in mind but motivational for all ages, The Playbook “rules” contain wisdom from inspiring athletes and role models such as Nelson Mandela, Serena Williams, LeBron James, Carli Lloyd, Steph Curry, and Michelle Obama. Alexander also provides his own poetic and uplifting words, as he shares stories of overcoming obstacles and winning games. This is a great compilation for anyone needing a little encouragement.
