“My daughter surprised us with the gift of original poetry written by John D Evans. We were asked to fill out a short survey and had no idea of what we would receive. Several family members received beautiful original poems which were beautifully written and quite special.”

“The candor, wit, stealth, and poignancy of the words of poet John Evans grabs young readers, surrounding them with words of belief, understanding, strife, life, and diversity. An inspiring collection of poetry in tribute to the Harlem Renaissance writers (Team 1).”

Children's Choice Book 2008 - International Reading Association
