In February 2003, a remarkable event took place at the 92nd Street Y in New York, a celebration of the millionth copy sold of Howard Zinn's great A People's History of the United States. Zinn drew on the words of Americans, some famous, some little known, across the range of American history. These words were read by distinguished people in the arts: Alice Walker, Alfre Woodard, Kurt Vonnegut, James Earl Jones, Danny Glover, Marisa Tomei, Harris Yulin, Andre Gregory, and others.
"I always find Howard Zinn books very interesting"
Stop searching! The truth is finally revealed!
Just so you know, there's a boy stuck inside this book! Seriously, no joke! There's a horse who despises grass, and a Grodie Kamodie pig as well. Drop in and see what tickles their fancy. But please beware! Some of the tales are tall, some of the words are big, and some of the bed bugs do bite! Speaking of biting, at all costs, please avoid the naughty Cyclops named Warner, and whatever you do, don't eat the Blake Eyed Beans.
Imagine! You've just finished the sixth grade, you have your first real part-time summer job working at NASA, and you uncover a plot to steal an ultra secret spying device that almost everyone's forgotten. What do you do?
