Description In conjunction with the Eat, Drink & Be Literary series, BAM presents a special family program with award-winning children's and young adult author Jacqueline Woodson and illustrator Hudson Talbott. Woodson will read from her latest Newbery Honor Award-winning book Show Way as Talbott shows slides of his accompanying artwork. Based on Woodson's own family history, the book connects eight generations, from slavery to the civil rights movement to the present, as told through Show Ways -- quilts that serve as secret guides to freedom -- revealing the continuity of one family's experience. Woodson and Talbott will also talk about how they chose their careers and their joint process in creating this unique book. Woodson is the 2006 recipient of the Margaret Edwards Lifetime Achievement Award.
