Archives For Kwame Alexander

 

The Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College last week was extraordinary as always!  As expected, it was a book-lovers delight, overflowing with extraordinary works of all genres.  I didn’t get to attend many sessions, but I talked to many festival-goers and checked in occasionally on social media. Here are ten books that had the FFW crowd buzzing.

 

These are not necessarily the best books, or the newest ones, just ones that I frequently heard people talking about (or whose authors they were talking about). Many other books that were featured at the Festival will be covered here on our website or in our print magazine over the coming months.
