A River of Words

A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams is a pitch-perfect picture-book biography.  Illustrator Melissa Sweet has visually captured the art of this spare yet gorgeous poet.  Author Jen Bryan simply yet eloquently presents William’s life in a way that is perfect for young readers.  Not just the typical picture book audience either. This is a book for anyone who loves Willams’ work, wants to see a fabulous illustrator at work. an elegant writer of biography for children, or just wants to learn about a remarkable American.

  1. I agree wholeheartedly that this book is gorgeous! The biographical story is clear and engaging, and the artwork is exquisite. Sweet’s artistry just grows and grows with every book project she takes on – always beautiful, and always surprising and original.
