Jacqueline Woodson's 'Another Brooklyn'

Email a Friend
This month the National Book Awards will announce this year’s winners. Among the finalists is Jacqueline Woodson’s novel “Another Brooklyn.” It’s her first adult novel in two decades, and it's the story of the friendship among four girls in the Bushwick neighborhood -- that’s where Woodson herself grew up.  She told Steve Paulson this kind of “black girl narrative” didn’t exist when she was younger - and she’s always wished she had books like this to read.
