One Book One Philadelphia kicks off its 16th year with Jaqueline Woodson’s poetic novel Another Brooklyn. Look for it and its youth companion selections Brown Girl Dreaming and This Is the Rope, both by Jaqueline Woodson on library shelves. For more information about One Book and this year’s Calendar of Events, visit https://libwww.freelibrary.org/programs/onebook/obop18/

    One Book, One Philadelphia
    Young August is full of promise and hope when her fragmented family moves from the American South to Brooklyn, New York. While nurtured by friendships with three other neighborhood girls, August comes of age, faces challenges, and chases her dreams. Set in a 1970s transitioning urban landscape, Another Brooklyn is described as "beautifully lyrical" by The Guardian and "powerfully insightful" by The New York Times.
