How do I attach this screen from a broken nextbook 8a to my pi?

Most probably not possible. Probably needs interface chips, and a load of software to set up the DSI driver on the PI, which would require information that is probably not available for the screen in question.

Interface seems to be MIPI DSI -- you need to have full spec of the module and a lot of know-how how to configure/use it
