Feed Your Mind: A Story of August Wilson

A celebration of August Wilson's journey from a child in Pittsburgh to one of America's greatest playwrights




August Wilson (1945-2005) was a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning
playwright who had a particular talent for capturing the authentic,
everyday voice of black Americans. As a child, he read off the soup cans
and cereal boxes in the pantry, and when his mother brought him to the
library, his whole world opened up. After facing intense prejudice at
school from both students and some teachers, August dropped out.
However, he continued reading and educating himself independently. He
felt that if he could read about it, then he could teach himself
anything and accomplish anything. Like many of his plays, Feed Your Mind
is told in two acts, revealing how Wilson grew up to be one of the most
influential American playwrights. The book includes an author's note, a
timeline of August Wilson's life, a list of Wilson's plays, and a
bibliography.
