This week the Grade 6 class will be reading "The Meyers Family", a biography of Walter Dean Meyers and his son, Chris Meyers. Walter Dean Meyers is a prolific black author of young adult literature. He has written such classics as Monster, Fallen Angels, and Harlem. His son, Christopher Meyers, is a talented artist who has illustrated many of his father's books. The reading is about how two people, father and son, have worked together to find success by complimenting each others' talents.
