Special March meeting announcement!


Jacqueline Woodson is coming! And you could win a chance to see her!

Woodson appears with Seattle Arts & Lectures in April. Will YOU be there?

If you are among the lucky attendees at our next monthly meeting on MARCH 16, you could be the lucky raffle winner of one of TWO PAIRS of tickets to see National Book Award Jacqueline Woodson, winner for 2014's BROWN GIRL DREAMING. We are so grateful and want to thank Seattle Arts & Lectures, under whose auspices Woodson will appear to talk about her stunning memoir in verse––and who rustled up the tickets to raffle off to YOU. 

In case you haven't read it, Woodson's gorgeous memoir in verse chronicles the author's dual childhood in South Carolina and Brooklyn during the segregation of the 1960s and ‘70s. In 2014, Woodson became the first African American to win the National Book Award for Young People's Literature for Brown Girl Dreaming. She is the Young People's Poet Laureate, sponsored by the Poetry Foundation and received a Newbery Honor Award for Brown Girl Dreaming. 

If you would like to see Woodson and aren't lucky on the 16th, CLICK HERE

SAL has generously provided SCBWI WWA with @ Pairs of tickets to this event! We will be raffling them off at our upcoming meeting on March 16. You can’t win them if you’re not there, so join us for an evening of presentations on Siblings in Middle Grade Fiction and Diversity and Inclusion in Children’s Books. Thanks, Seattle Arts and Lectures!
