The Girl Squad
Organized by: Debra Goodman
I remember growing up in Aheville North Carolina in the 70's. It didn't start out easy because I was the "new kid on the block." Boy did BB Alexander and Boopie give me a hard time We eventually became friends, but my first best friend was Audrey Craig. Oh the fun we had on our block! South French Broad, Bartlett street, Blanton and that whole neighborhood! This is the place that framed my life. I could name names for days.
Memories of that time in my life continue to make me laugh, cry and talk about it for hours.
The Girl Squad is an up and coming book series for young Black Girls. It's about the times they had growing up. Their stories of fun, school and the hardest times of their lives. Centered in the inner city of Charlotte North Carolina, these girls have a story to tell.
Debra Goodman is a published greeting card and poetry writer. She is now raising funds to complete her first book, The Girl Squad.
