In April of 2016, after the release of her award-winning Brown Girl Dreaming, Jacqueline Woodson visited our Sanctuary for a talk and book signing. Woodson spent part of her childhood in Greenville (the other part in Brooklyn), so it was a coming home, in a way. She shared how her reminiscences in verse became the children’s book.
On Tuesday, October 8, at 7:00pm, Woodson returns to our Sanctuary to discuss her new book, Red at the Bone, an adult novel in an event co-sponsored by Fiction Addiction and First Baptist Greenville. NPR critic Heller McAlpin states Red at the Bone “reads like poetry and drama, a cry from the heart that often cuts close to the bone.”
This event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. VIP tickets (limited to 50) will include two copies of the featured book, and VIP ticketholders will have front-row seating and first access to the signing line.
