Jacqueline Woodson

In this week’s episode, guest Jacqueline Woodson’s very interview is a window into the power of words. We touch upon meaning, taking the time to consider what words you put on the page, the value of slow reading, and how to find universal meaning in the small moments. Jacqueline writes across genres and is known for her spare style and lyricism, and listening to this interview should have the impact of sending her books straight to the top of your reading queue.


Jacqueline Woodson is the award-winning author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Brown Girl Dreaming, which won the National Book Award, the Coretta Scott King Award, a Newbery Honor, and the NAACP Image Award. She’s also the author of Red at the Bone, Another Brooklyn, and dozens of books for young readers. Discover more about Jacqueline at www.jacquelinewoodson.com.
