Read full description of the books:



El clásico norteamericano sobre la infancia y juventud de una hija de inmigrantes en el Brooklyn de la década de 1920.
Corren los años 20 del pasado siglo. Al abrir el libro, descubrimos a la pequeña Francie sentada en la escalera antiincendios de su casa, leyendo, a la sombra de un árbol. Poco a poco, la mirada se aleja de la chiquilla para abarcar a la estrafalaria familia Nolan, que malvive en el barrio de Brooklyn. Francie crece rodeada de los libros que tanto le gustan, y pronto empieza a pedirle a la vida algo más que un triste acomodo en la mediocridad. Un árbol crece en Brooklyn es una novela en la que los personajes son tan próximos que nos duelen sus dolores, y en la que el sueño americano cobra por fin peso y color.

Betty Smith (AKA Sophina Elisabeth Wehner): Born- December 15, 1896; Died- January 17, 1972

Born in Brooklyn, New York to German immigrants, she grew up poor in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. These experiences served as the framework to her first novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1943).

After marrying George H. E. Smith, a fellow Brooklynite, she moved with him to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he pursued a law degree at the University of Michigan. At this time, she gave birth to two girls and waited until they were in school so she could complete her higher education. Although Smith had not finished high school, the university allowed her to enroll in classes. There she honed her skills in journalism, literature, writing, and drama, winning a prestigious Hopwood Award. She was a student in the classes of Professor Kenneth Thorpe Rowe.

In 1938 she divorced her husband and moved to Chapel Hill, North Carolina. There she married Joseph Jones in 1943, the same year in which A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was published. She teamed with George Abbott to write the book for the 1951 musical adaptation of the same name. Throughout her life, Smith worked as a dramatist, receiving many awards and fellowships including the Rockefeller Fellowship and the Dramatists Guild Fellowship for her work in drama. Her other novels include Tomorrow Will Be Better (1947), Maggie-Now (1958) and Joy in the Morning (1963).
