Jacqueline Woodson, one of my favorite authors, who wrote
has a new book out "Another Brooklyn".
Jacqueline Woodson's "Another Brooklyn" is a compelling coming-of-age story (adult novel) about August and her girlfriends, Sylvia, Angela, and Gigi set in 1970s Brooklyn. As a woman August returns home and has a chance encounter on the subway with her childhood friend. This encounter sets in motion a series of memories that tell their story of friendship, adolescence, race, and culture. Beautifully written and every bit as poetic as you'd expect from her but a bit edgier. One reviewer captured the essence of the book in two sentences ... This gorgeous novel is a poem. It is a love letter to black girlhood.
In the Hmong tradition, the song poet recounts the story of his people, their history and tragedies, joys and losses; extemporizing or drawing on folk tales, he keeps the past alive, invokes the spirits and the homeland, and records courtships, births, weddings, and wishes.
