Tuesday, May 16, 7 pm, Gibbs-Morrison Cultural Center, 1823 Church St, Evanston

For August, running into a long-ago friend sets in motion resonant memories and transports her to a time and a place she thought she had mislaid: 1970s Brooklyn, where friendship was everything. August, Sylvia, Angela, and Gigi shared confidences as they ambled their neighborhood streets, a place where the girls believed that they were amazingly beautiful, brilliantly talented, with a future that belonged to them. But beneath the hopeful promise there was another Brooklyn, a dangerous place where grown men reached for innocent girls in dark hallways, where mothers disappeared, where fathers found religion, and where madness was a mere sunset away. Woodson heartbreakingly illuminates the formative period when a child meets adulthood--when precious innocence meets the all-too-real perils of growing up.

Copies of Another Brooklyn will be held at the 2nd floor desk. Please call 847-448-8620 to register and get a copy. For more information, including related  interviews, videos and other websites, see the AAL blog.
