Jaqueline Woodson, Another Brooklyn
From the venue:
New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Woodson stops by the Margaret Mitchell House to read from and discuss Another Brooklyn, a coming-of-age story told in reverse and her first adult novel in two decades. August, Angel, Sylvia and Gigi spent their childhood together in 1970s Bushwick filled with light, hope, joy and laughter. But a chance encounter with an old friend reminds August of another, less innocent side of the Brooklyn neighborhood. August recounts the strife and harmony of her girlhood with a matured perspective as Woodson plays with time and memory.
