Jacqueline Woodson at Boswell - Rose Petranech Lecture
We're so pleased to announce that the National Book Award-winning author Jacqueline Woodson will be appearing at Boswell Book Company for the Rose Petranech Lecture. Woodson is appearing for her new novel, Red at the Bone, and will be in conversation with writer, performer, and creative change agent Dasha Kelly Hamilton at Boswell.
Tickets are $28, include admission, a copy of Red at the Bone, and all taxes and fees. Online ticket sales for this event have now ended. A limited number of walk-up tickets should be available.
Here's a little more about the book. Two families from different social classes are joined together by an unexpected pregnancy and the child that it produces. Moving forward and backward in time, with the power of poetry and the emotional richness of a narrative ten times its length, Jacqueline Woodsons extraordinary new novel uncovers the role that history and community have played in the experiences, decisions, and relationships of these families, and in the life of this child.
Jacqueline Woodson is the bestselling author of more than two dozen award-winning books including the 2016 National Book Award finalist for adult fiction, Another Brooklyn. Among her many accolades, Woodson is a four-time National Book Award finalist (and winner for Brown Girl Dreaming), a four-time Newbery Honor winner, a two-time NAACP Image Award Winner, and a two-time Coretta Scott King Award Winner.
Woodson is also the 2018-2019 National Ambassador for Young Peoples Literature and recipient of the 2018 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award and the 2018 Childrens Literature Legacy Award. In 2015, she was named the Young Peoples Poet Laureate by the Poetry Foundation.
In addition to our general admission, Boswell will be working with several community groups (including Dasha Kelly Hamilton's own Still Waters Collective) to broaden the audience that would not normally be able to attend such an event. We're grateful to Kate Petranech, who is helping us facilitate this outreach, in honor of her late, book-loving sister, Rose Petranech.
