A customer in Charlotte, North Carolina recently let us know that award-winning author Kekla Magoon would be visiting with their middle school students this fall.

To support this author visit, we created an original Meet-the-Author Book Reading with Kekla and co-author Ilyasah Shabazz talking about their book, X: A Novel (Candlewick 2016). In this recording, they explain why they wanted to write a novelization about Malcolm X’s experiences as a teenager.

xnovelShare a Book Reading with students as a way for them to connect to the book and the author(s) in a whole new way.

You can also listen to both Kekla Magoon and Ilyasah Shabazz talk about their names.

Author Name Pronunciation recordings are a fun way to introduce authors and their books to your students.
