Jacqueline Woodson just won the National Book Award for Brown Girl Dreaming. Why haven't I bought that book yet? I'll take care of that situation, post haste. This author's been part of our house for a lot of years because 20 Something read If You Come Softly many years ago and made us aware that this author's important work was a life changing reading experience. Congratulations to Ms. Woodson and thanks for all the great books.
