Walter Dean Myers passed away last week on Tuesday July 1st. Myers was a prolific author, publishing an array of children’s and young adult books.

Myers often painted portraits of young African-Americans who battled troubles in the streets, in school and at home. (…) “He wrote about disenfranchised black kids, particularly boys, and he wrote about them with extraordinary honesty and also with compassion,” Avi, a children’s book author and a longtime friend of Mr. Myers, said in a telephone interview on Thursday. “Besides his books, his legacy is his compassionate identity with these young people.” (New York Times)
