He is a Los Angeles Times Book Prize finalist, two-time winner of the North Carolina Young Adult Book Award, and recipient of New York’s Bankstreet College Claudia Lewis Award for Poetry. Wolf’s YA novel in verse, The Watch that Ends the Night: Voices from the Titanic, was included on Booklist’s 50 Best YA Books of All Time. Allan Wolf’s dynamic author talks and poetry presentations for all ages are inspiring, informative, and entertaining. Florida Reading Quarterly calls Wolf “the gold standard of performing poetry.” Wolf believes in the healing powers of poetry recitation and has committed to memory nearly a thousand poems.
