"A Girl Named Charity" Book Launch Party!

Posted by Francine C. Still Hicks on June 3, 2015 at 10:05 PM

"Young Charity Still has one wish. She longs to be free, just like the guinea hen from her ancestral land of West Africa."

Francine C. Still Hicks author of “A Girl Named Charity” will be giving a story time for all children and parents attending the book launch party! There will be a book signing - hands on participation from the children – live music – door prize – balloons and home-style cookies!

“A Girl Named Charity” is based off Still Hicks’ ancestor, who escaped slavery twice. Her son, William Still, would become an agent and a famous conductor on the Underground Railroad. The book celebrates ancestors’ accomplishments while giving young readers a glimpse into the life of a slave girl.

This picture book for young children puts a personal face on the history of slavery. It teaches that whatever the circumstances in life—good or bad, joyful or painful—they can be overcome. It’s important to have, hope, faith, and belief in yourself that the spirit within will provide the strength to overcome any obstacle.

“I want the child reader to walk away with boldness in their heart and still be respectful to others.“For the adult reader, I want them to walk away remembering the child they once were – and the essence of that child still lives within!” - Francine C. Still Hicks

We will have a special guest appearance… "Charity!”

 

“Come and enjoy Charity’s story about the chickens and meet her!”

 

"Do you see that chicken coop up there, over by the stables where the horses live? I got in a heap of trouble there one day. Sara and I felt sorry for the poor chickens; all caged up and just waiting for their killing day. I told Sara, “I am going to set them free and they will fly far away, into the clouds.”
