Jacqueline Woodson - Another Brooklyn

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Now available in paperback, Woodson’s first adult novel in twenty years appeared to instant acclaim. Praised as much for its graceful and muscular prose as for its clear-eyed narrative of the diverse influences that shape the lives of young African-American women, this coming-of-age story by the Young People’s Poet Laureate focuses on August and her best friends. Recreating Brooklyn in the 1970s, Woodson follows her characters from their early enchantment with the world through their discoveries that men can be treacherous, mothers can disappear, and security might be an illusion. Wise and moving, Woodson’s novel was a finalist for the National Book Award, and joins this distinguished writer’s long list of beloved books.
