We are thrilled to have best selling novelist and poet Jacqueline Woodson on The Short Stacks to discuss Red at the Bone, her newest book, and our book club pick for this week (tune in on Wednesday)! We talk with Jacqueline about how she turned a childhood habit of lying into a career, crafting authentic characters, and giving a TED Talk.
