The Beauty of Poetry Poster
“The Butterfly Poems,” an excerpt from Jacqueline Woodson’s latest work, Brown Girl Dreaming, is featured on this stunning poster celebrating the beauty of poetry. Brown Girl Dreaming—Woodson’s memoir in verse—tells the story of a young girl coming of age in the 1960s and 70s in both the North and the South. Woodson has been the recipient of three Newbery Honor Awards, the Coretta Scott King Award and numerous CSK Honor Awards, and the Margaret A. Edwards Lifetime Achievement Award—among many other honors.
