Shaunna J. Edwards & Alyson Richman | The Thread Collectors
Authors Shaunna J. Edwards and Alyson Richman will join us virtually to discuss their powerful novel, The Thread Collectors, set during the brutal Civil War about two women—one Black and yearning for freedom in New Orleans, the other a Jewish abolitionist in New York. As these two women risk everything for love and freedom, their paths converge in New Orleans, where an unexpected encounter leads them to discover that even the most delicate threads have the capacity to save us. Loosely inspired by the authors’ family histories, this stunning novel will capture readers’ hearts from the very first page.
Authors Shaunna J. Edwards & Alyson Richman will be in conversation with Cassandra L. Jones, Ph.D. (Assistant Professor, Africana Studies, University of Cincinnati).
