I am so happy for the occasion to participate in this local author’s reception. Two years ago, I had signed up for the 2020 event. Yes, you’ve guessed it. COVID-19 but an end to all in-person events at the library and pretty much everywhere else. Those were tough times when we all were forced to forego all of our social plans. Although, we’ve been vaccinated and boosted COVID is still a threat. Today in most public places masks are optional.
What a lovely flyer my granddaughter made for me! I am so proud of her. Not only did she create two flyers for this event, but she is in the process of designing resin bookmarks! I can hardly wait to receive them in the mail. These bookmarks will be my personal give aways to patrons who purchase my book at the reception. I am so looking forward to this.
If you live in the Fredericksburg area, please stop by, purchase a book, and receive a bookmark especially designed for my readers. I’d love to meet you.
Malanna Carey Henderson is a Detroit native who presently resides in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Her adoptive city is rich in history. America's early colonial period and four major battles of the Civil War have marked its landscape. George Washington, his mother, sister, and brother-in-law attended the same church of which Malanna is a member.
As a child, Malanna was an avid reader. Her favorite genres were biographies, mysteries, and historical fiction. The more books she read, the greater the urge to write grew. Malanna's creative attributes encompass playwriting, composing music, and singing. She has won two first-place awards for her one-act plays.
On the Wings of Freedom is a book that combines several genres: a quest for social justice, adventure, and romance. The backdrop is 19th-century America. Here, the legal practices of the antebellum south are tested against the principles of freedom and democracy. On the Wings of Freedom is Malanna's first novel.
