Meet the Authors
Down home is Granny’s house. Down home is where Lil Alan and his parents and sister will join great-grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Down home, Lil Alan will hear stories of ancestors and visit land that meant so much to them. And down home is where all of the children will find their special way to pay tribute to their family history. All the kids have to decide on what tribute to share, but what will Lil Alan do? In this rich and moving celebration of history, culture, and ritual, Lyons’ eloquent text explores the power of family traditions.
