Winter 2020–21: Red at the Bone
An exquisitely wrought tale of the intertwining lives of two Black families in modern-day Brooklyn, Red at the Bone explores personal histories shaped by race and the decisions we make, often under duress or before we can fully understand their consequences.
Spend the evening of Thursday, March 18, with acclaimed author Jacqueline Woodson, a National Book Award winner and 2020 MacArthur Foundation fellow. Woodson will discuss her work including this year's One Book selection, Red at the Bone. This event takes place online, is free and open to all, and will not be recorded.
Jacqueline Woodson is a bestselling author, winner of multiple prestigious literary awards, 2020 MacArthur fellow, and a changemaker in the book world. A prolific writer, she has penned stories for readers of all ages. She lives with her family in Brooklyn.
Join the movement to foster community through reading. One Book, One Community invites all readers in the Cook Memorial, Indian Trails, and Vernon Area library districts to read this year's selections by Jacqueline Woodson, participate in book discussions and related events, and hear from the author on March 18. All events take place online and are open to all, regardless of home library.
