In YOU GOTTA MEET MR. PIERCE, young readers step back in time to visit with Pierce in his Columbus, Ohio barbershop, where, in between cutting customers’ hair, he crafted thousands of figures in wood. They’ll discover how this son of a former enslaved man taught himself to carve, and then went on to become one of the first famous black folk artists, gaining worldwide fame at the age of 81. Filled with warm and inspiring dialogue taken directly from Pierce’s past interviews, this text is especially suited to audio.
