Jacqueline Woodson is a poet and novelist. She won the National Book Award for “Brown Girl Dreaming.” Her latest novel is “Another Brooklyn,” an autobiographical exploration of childhood friendships in 1970s New York. It was nominated for the National Book Award.
From the publisher about “Another Brooklyn”:
Running into a long-ago friend sets memory from the 1970s in motion for August, transporting her to a time and a place where friendship was everything—until it wasn’t. For August and her girls, sharing confidences as they ambled through neighborhood streets, Brooklyn was a place where they believed that they were beautiful, talented, brilliant—a part of a future that belonged to them.
