Search - List of Books by Walter Dean Myers

Walter Dean Myers (born Walter Milton Myers, August 12, 1937, Martinsburg, West Virginia) is an African American author of young adult literature. Myers has written over fifty books, including novels and nonfiction works. He has won the Coretta Scott King Award for African American authors five times. One of his novels, Fallen Angels, has made the American Library Association's list of frequently challenged books, due to adult language and its realistic depiction of the Vietnam War. Most of Myers' works are based in Harlem. His novels frequently portray urban teenagers struggling with gang life, drug use, violence, and peer pressure, who are trying to find ways out of the life they are born into.
