Overview

Notes From Your Bookseller

Two artists, two Jasons, both incredibly talented with the dream of moving to New York to pursue their dreams. This must-read autobiography, written by Jason Reynolds and Jason Griffin, will show readers that friendship often influences art and molds and shapes individuals. It’s a beautiful and compelling story of how these two supported each other while making their dreams happen! 

A stunning visual autobiography of two crazy-talented besties, bestselling and award-winning author Jason Reynolds and painter Jason Griffin, who could never be who they are singularly if they weren’t who they were together.

Once upon a time in America, there were two Jasons. Jason Reynolds and Jason Griffin. One a poet. One an artist. One Black. One white. Two voices. One journey in mind: to move to New York, the city of dreams, to make their own dreams come true. Willing to have a life not un-hard, so long as it wasn’t unhappy. Willing to let the city swallow them whole, so long as it gives them their chance. They had each other. “What if painting was a sin, and the poetry became taboo. And no one ever clapped for me again. My question is, would you?”

They clapped. Oh, they clapped. And aren’t we glad?
