PBS and Ashley Bryan

Join author and illustrator, Ashley Bryan, as he reads his beautifully illustrated and rhythmically timed book, Beautiful Blackbird. This is Coretta Scott King Award-winner Ashley Bryan's adaptation of a tale from the Ila-speaking people of Zambia. The book resonates both with rhythm and the tale's universal meanings -- appreciating one's heritage and discovering the beauty within. His cut-paper artwork is a joy.
