Love Sharon Draper

February 13, 2010

I always find myself enthralled by Sharon Draper’s books. I can’t stop reading or listening to the stories she shares. Very cool thing is coming up – you can chat with her on Feb. 17 @ 9pm on the readergirlz.com.  The website has picked Copper Sun by Sharon Draper as their book of the month. Copper Sun is an amazing story of resilience. When Amari’s village in Ghana is destroyed, she is captured and sold as a slave in South Carolina.  She befriends Polly, an indentured servant on the same plantation.  Together they try to make their way to a slave sanctuary in Florida. Check out the book now and join the conversation on readergirlz.com.
