Woodson named to literature post
The Library of Congress, along with the Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader, has named Jacqueline Woodson the country’s next National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature.
A formal ceremony will take place this week at which she will begin her two-year term.
One of the country’s most acclaimed writers for young people, Woodson won the National Book Award in 2014 for the memoir-in-verse “Brown Girl Dreaming” and is also known for novels such as “Feathers” and “Another Brooklyn.” She has previously served as “young people’s poet laureate,” an advisory position for the Poetry Foundation.
The ambassador position was established in 2008 with a mission to raise “national awareness of the importance of young people’s literature as it relates to lifelong literacy, education and the development and betterment of the lives of young people.”
