"Jacqueline Woodson, one of today's finest writers, tells the moving story of her childhood in mesmerizing verse. Raised in South Carolina and New York, Woodson always felt halfway home in each place. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful, each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged, each line a glimpse into a child's soul as she searches for her place in the world. Woodson's eloquent poetry also reflects the joy of finding her voice through writing stories, despite the fact that she struggled with reading as a child. Her love of stories inspired her and stayed with her, creating the first sparks of the gifted writer she was to become. Praise for Jacqueline Woodson: Ms. Woodson writes with a sure understanding of the thoughts of young people, offering a poetic, eloquent narrative that is not simply a story. but a mature exploration of grown-up issues and self-discovery"-The New York Times Book Review"-- "The author shares her childhood memories and reveals the first sparks that ignited her writing career in free-verse poems about growing up in the North and South"--… (mer)

    Autobiography of a Family Photo av Jacqueline Woodson (susanbooks)
    susanbooks: Autobiography of a Familly Photo is a prose novel and stands beautifully on its own. Read alongside Brown Girl Dreaming, the earlier book seems like the nightmare, R-rated version of the later one. Both are stunning.

Poetry
This book of poetry follows the life of the author, Jacqueline Woodson, from her birth to around age ten. Jacqueline was born in Ohio, the youngest child of three, in 1963, during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Jacqueline and her family are African-American, and the book goes along with the details of their lives through the eyes of Jacqueline.

A collection of childhood stories about growing up in America in the 60's, Jacqueline Woodson tells her story to inspire young people of color like her. This book is a great read for middle grades students. It touches on themes of race, religion, and diversity. This book would be great for an English or Social Studies class because of the topics covered. ( )

I first learned of this book through my friend, who also happens to be named Jackie.

Since this is a book of poetry, I'm not sure whether listening to the audio book helped or hindered my appreciation relative to reading the printed version. In either case, this was beautiful. It is a series of autobiographical poems covering the time from the author's birth to the early 1970's, when she felt she had truly become a writer.

I was surprised to find a personal connection with the early poems because they are set in Columbus, OH, which is where I went to graduate school. Many of the names and places were familiar.

From the description of an African-American girl growing up "in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow," I expected this book to be full of much more pain inflicted by white men and the culture that privileges us. Certainly, Woodson had her share of pain as a child, but most of it did not come from the sources I expected, at least not directly. Most of it came from conflicts within her family, especially the conflicts between the Northern and Southern sides.

In these poems is also much joy, curiosity, confusion, and other emotions of childhood. She gives a captivating window into how she grew into a writer and storyteller despite some discouragement. None of these poems document anything outside the experience of many children past and present, but I felt many of the emotions with her as she read them. I think that is the greatest strength of this book; it brings extraordinary life to many of the deep and powerful emotions and experiences of what might otherwise be called an "ordinary" childhood.
