“Someone Please Light a Sparkler for Me”
is Gonna Be the Name of My Next Country Ballad

h1 July 4th, 2012 by jules

Here’s an idea for a 4th of July celebration: Grab your favorite child to curl up and read Bryan Collier’s picture book adaptation of Langston Hughes’s iconic poem, “I, Too, Sing America.” This morning over at Kirkus, I chat briefly with Bryan about it. Next week at 7-Imp, I’ll have one more spread from the book.

The Kirkus link is here.

It’s so hot and dry in middle Tennessee that we are banned from the use of fireworks, so someone please light a sparkler for me.
