[words] Bookstore event- Freedom Lessons-A Novel

Local Authors’ Day at [words]! 179 Maplewood Avenue, Maplewood, NJ 973-763-9500

Thrilled to be included! [words] has invited authors from Maplewood and neighboring towns to participate. At 3:00 pm Eileen Harrison Sanchez will introduce her historical fiction Freedom Lessons - A Novel.

"Inspired by the author’s real-life experiences, Freedom Lessons is a candid and nuanced novel about a young Northern woman who spends a year teaching in the 1960s Jim Crow South. In the process, she learns more about herself and her country than she ever expected. Freedom Lessons is illuminating and gripping, and a worthy addition to the literature of the civil rights era."
~Amy Hill Hearth, New York Times and Washington Post best-selling author and recipient of two American Library Association Notable Book citations.
