From a New York Times Book Review interview with one Jacqueline Woodson:
What books are currently on your night stand?
I’m one of those people who will read more than one book at a time — I write the same way. Once I get deeply into a book, the rest have to wait. So right now, having just returned from Palestine, I’m reading Jimmy Carter’s “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid.” Carter was one of my favorite presidents, and I got to have lunch with him last year for The Times’s Table for Three feature. He was as lovely in person as I had imagined, and he’s been such an amazing activist.
...What’s your favorite TV, film or theater adaptation of a book?
“Brooklyn,” by Colm Toibin. I love the book and love the movie. I was just in Palestine with Colm, and now I love the author too.
Where is that Palestine?
