Richard Kigel

When it comes to reading, writing, and books, Richard Kigel brings the practical skills of an experienced literacy professional to his work. A veteran of thirty years teaching in Brooklyn public schools, he has been on the front lines in the literacy wars, inspiring students in reading and writing for a generation.

His article “Phillis Wheatley and the Boston Tea Party: How Books of Poems Started a Literary Tradition While Chests of Tea Started a Revolution” in the Fall 2013 issue of The Dial, journal of the Old South Meeting House National Historical Landmark and Museum in Boston, revealed for the first time that the shipment of Phillis Wheatley’s books arrived from London on the same ship as the hated tea.
