August Wilson (1945ΓÇô2005) was a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright who had a particular talent for capturing the authentic everyday voice of Black Americans. As a child, he read off soup cans and cereal boxes, and when his mother brought him to the library, his whole world opened up. After facing intense prejudice at school from both students and some teachers, August dropped out. However, he continued reading and educating himself independently. He felt that if he could read about it, then he could teach himself anything and accomplish anything. Like many of his plays, Feed Your Mind is told in two acts, revealing how Wilson grew up to be one of the most influential American playwrights.

Jen Bryant is the author of picture books, novels, nonfiction, and poems. Her biographical picture book, A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams, received a Caldecott Honor Award, and her historical novel in verse, Ringside 1925: Views from the Scopes Trial, is an Oprah Recommended Book. She has taught writing and Children's Literature at West Chester University and Bryn Mawr College, and she gives lectures and workshops throughout the country.

David Sadzin began using his voice to get attention in grade school, where his teacher thought he was awfully quiet until she gave him a paragraph to read out loud. After a few intense years on New York stages performing traditional and experimental theater and improv comedy, he is now comfortably settled in front of a mic in his home studio in Brooklyn, New York.
