Jacqueline Woodson is the first author to have her books chosen for all three One Book, One Philadelphia selections: she has written this year’s featured book, Another Brooklyn, as well as the middle-grade and children’s companions Brown Girl Dreaming and This Is the Rope. To kick-off eight weeks of inspired performances, workshops and discussions, she will be joined by WHYY’s Annette John-Hall in lively conversation around the common themes that her writing for readers of all ages covers. The evening will conclude with a performance inspired by the book from 2016-17 Philadelphia Poet Laureate, Yolanda Wisher, and members of her band, The Afroeaters.
