If you have never seen Dr. Boswell's presentation, you are REALLY missing a treat. She has the gift of story telling that draws you in and allows you to experience the story of Lizzie and her relationships with Ms. Pearlie and her mother.

Great experience! If you want to attend or schedule a presentation with a book signing, you may have to wait; there is a two to six month waiting list.

Keep up the great work!!

Thank you so much for the insights into Dr. Boswell's presentation! I've not had the pleasure of meeting her, but would LOVE to. I'd also enjoy doing an interview here on the Black Threads blog so her story can be shared here as well.

Best, Kyra
