An award-winning children's fiction author has brought his tour to a Charleston school.

Kwame Alexander sat with students at Camp Road Middle School Wednesday.

The poet and New York Times Bestselling author of 25 books is continuing his official "Rebound" tour for a special greeting of his student fans.

The tour is named after the follow-up to his Newbery-medal winning middle-grade novel "The Crossover," released in 2014

Alexander is the recipient of several awards, including but not limited to the Coretta Scott King Author Honor, The Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Prize and three NAACP Image Award nominations.

He delivered a presentation for 7th-grade students and was able to sign copies of his books for students.
