The second chapter of the Skylark Unbound Book Club will feature BROWN GIRL DREAMING, by Children’s laureate and 2019 Unbound keynote Jacqueline Woodson. This YA title won the National Book Award in 2014.
Brown Girl Dreaming was also a recipient of the Coretta Scott King Award, a Newbery Honor Award, the NAACP Image Award and the Sibert Honor Award. Woodson was recently named the Young People’s Poet Laureate by the Poetry Foundation. She is the author of more than two dozen award-winning books for young adults, middle graders and children; among her many accolades, she is a four-time Newbery Honor winner, a three-time National Book Award finalist, and a two-time Coretta Scott King Award winner.
This discussion will be led by Skylark bookseller Beth Shapiro, who, as a former high school librarian, knows a thing or two about YA books.
