About the event
Bring your young readers and anyone interested in an adventure about Black Seminoles in 1812 Spanish Florida.
From Kirkus Reviews: Anne, a prolific author and Florida resident who is of African and Indigenous descent, presents a series opener that is both well-researched and well-written. The author engages the audience with a dual-perspective narration that’s exciting, suspenseful, and socially conscious, though not preachy. Anne supplements the little-known history of the Black Seminoles depicted in the novel with a short glossary of terms and additional information on real-life people and events after the story concludes. Though Mia only appears at the tale’s beginning and end, she’s a relatable young girl who finds her inner strength. The bulk of the unique book belongs to Talula, whose heroic actions will inspire young and older readers. Riveting historical fiction that will enrich and delight the audience.
“I create books that take readers to new worlds, on marvelous adventures, and open doors to journeys never imagined.” -L. B. Anne
