Brown Girl Dreaming

R 95.00

In vivid poems, Jacqueline Woodson shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960's and 1970's, 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.

Woodson’s eloquent poetry also reflects the joy of finding her voice through writing stories, despite the fact that she struggled with reading as a child.

Her love of stories inspired her and stayed with her, creating the first sparks of the gifted writer she was to become.

"Ms. Woodson writes with a sure understanding of the thoughts of young people, offering a poetic, eloquent narrative that is not simply a story . . . but a mature exploration of grown-up issues and self-discovery.”—The New York Times Book Review
