In a conversation sure to delve into the divisive politics of our age and what it means to be an American fiction writer of color today, Junot Díaz, whose work has been honored with a Pulitzer and a MacArthur, joins Jacqueline Woodson, whose books for readers of all ages have won prizes including a National Book Award and a Coretta Scott King Award. From his "Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" to her "Brown Girl Dreaming," from his activist work in the Dominican-American community to her stories for teenage readers about what it means to grow up black and gay, Diaz and Woodson are writers who know how to raise their voices when it counts.
