Brown Girl Dreaming

Improbable Athenaeum invites you to see Jacqueline Woodson’s BROWN GIRL DREAMING!

Woodson’s beloved memoir in verse of growing up and finding her voice as a writer during the civil rights struggle is described by the NY Times as “a life raft when you want to float far from wherever you are, and wherever you’re going, toward the person you feel destined to be … This is a book full of poems that cry out to be learned by heart. These are poems that will, for years to come, be stored in our bloodstream.”  

If you already love Brown Girl Dreaming, come hear how rich these words are when given life and body by a powerhouse performer, noted regional actress Kimberly Webb; if you haven’t yet read it, come discover the beauty and power of Woodson’s writing.
