CommUNITY Book Club--Brown Girl Dreaming
CommUNITY Book Club will meet and discuss "Brown Girl Dreaming" by Jacqueline Woodson. Woodson tells the moving story of her childhood in mesmerizing verse. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful, each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged, each line a glimpse into a child's soul as she searches for her place in the world. "Brown Girl Dreaming" is a 2014 National Book Award winner, and also received the Coretta Scott King Award, a Newbery Honor Award, the NAACP Image Award and the Sibert Honor Award.
