Holbrook’s easy, conversational tone belies the difficulties and challenges she has faced as a black woman in Minneapolis, establishing herself as a writer, arts activist, and teacher, while also being a single mother raising five children. Incarcerated as a pregnant 16 year-old, she went on to become a major voice in the Twin Cities literary community, providing opportunities and support for marginalized writers as she struggled with depression, the aftermath of an abusive relationship, and the racism of off-hand comments and closed doors. Through her story, we see what can be accomplished with passion, determination, and a deep, caring heart. — Joan (RBB Staff)
