Author Talk with Jacqueline Woodson

Thursday, June 20, 2019, 6 p.m.

Join Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award-winner (NBA), at Dunbar High School as a part of Summer Challenge in an event co-sponsored by Politics and Prose. Woodson, the 2018-2019 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, is the author of numerous award-winning books, including Brown Girl Dreaming, a mesmerizing memoir in verse about growing up as an African American girl in the 1960s and 1970s. Her story is both accessible and emotionally charged, each line offering a glimpse into a child’s soul as she searches for her place in the world.

Ages 10 and up.
