Derrick Gantt, author and publisher, is changing the face of children's literature. A native Philadelphian, Gantt launched SONGHAI PRESS CORPORATION. In less than ten years, his "baby project" has grown into a corporate powerhouse - attracting the attention of learning institutions and a growing list of sponsors. Currently, thousands of children and families are enjoying his publications such as, "Hey Pop-Pop! "Eboni and the Dinosaur" and "The Storyteller" Books I & II. Since 1996, the School District of Philadelphia has purchased a copy of Gantt's publication, "My First Week of School" for each family with children entering kindergarten in the district. In addition to Gantt's publications, he has developed literacy and writing programs for children and families such as "Raising Readers" a workshop designed to help parents make literacy a centerpiece in the home, and "The Young Publisher's Program" to help children write, edit, illustrate and publish books.

Mr. Gantt's own dream and determination has grown with increasing breadth and success through focused efforts and the energetic support of community and professional partners.
