"You can do whatever you want to do.
The only limits are the ones you set yourself.
You have all you need in you right now."
 
When Kenny Leon's grandmother told him to "take you wherever you go," she could hardly have anticipated that he would establish himself as one of Broadway's most exciting and acclaimed directors. But through years of hard work, Kenny would migrate from a small wooden house in rural Florida to the Tony Awards' stage, where he would win Best Direction of a Play for his 2014 revival of A Raisin in the Sun.
 
In TAKE YOU WHEREVER YOU GO, Leon reflects on the pillars of wisdom he learned every step of the way from the most important people in his life-from his grandmother's sagacious and encouraging motivations to the steady hand of his mother to the deep artistic and social influence of iconic American playwright August Wilson.
 
TAKE YOU WHEREVER YOU GO is a poignant, ruminative, and inspirational memoir that empowers you to be true to yourself as you navigate your own path.

On Tuesday, June 26 at 7 p.m. at the Carter Center, Kenny Leon discusses his new memoir with Lois Reitzes of WABE Radio. An audience Q&A and book signing will follow. This is a ticketed event. Tickets include a signed copy of Take You Wherever You Go.
