Shorties (Jacqueline Woodson Profiled, New Music from Soccer Mommy, and more)

Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson

The New York Times Magazine profiled author Jacqueline Woodson.

"When she first began publishing books, the industry was considerably whiter, from the people who made the books to the characters inside them. Many credit Woodson herself with helping to change that, at least incrementally. She has broadened the scope of children’s and young-adult literature in particular, and not just in terms of its demographics; her work has been challenged in some schools and libraries because of its frank portrayals of sexuality and interracial relationships, something she first learned during a phone conversation with the Y.A. giant Judy Blume."
