Emrys Annual Meeting and Jacqueline Woodson April 10th!


We’ll meet at Genevieve’s at 5:30 to have a brief business meeting and induct new Board members, then go together to the Gunter Theatre to hear Jacqueline Woodson, 2018-19 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. In celebration of national poetry month and as part of the Peace Center’s Poetic Conversations series, she will be discussing her book, Brown Girl Dreaming. This memoir reflects on Woodson’s time spent in Greenville’s African-American area of Nicholtown as a child and revisits the clash of the civil rights era from a young person’s perspective. This homecoming will focus on the power of poetry and dreams. The event is free and Emrys has reserved a block of seats. Please RSVP so we’ll know to save one for you.
