We are excited to host novelist Rita Woods for a virtual event to celebrate her debut novel, "Remembrance"! We were supposed to host Rita back in Detroit this month so are thrilled that we can still make this event happen virtually. If you are a fan of Yaa Gyasi's "Homegoing" and Octavia Butler's "Kindred" this book is for you.

Join for this event.

About Remembrance

Remembrance…It’s a rumor, a whisper passed in the fields and veiled behind sheets of laundry. A hidden stop on the underground road to freedom, a safe haven protected by more than secrecy…if you can make it there.

Ohio, present day. An elderly woman who is more than she seems warns against rising racism as a young nurse grapples with her life.

Haiti, 1791, on the brink of revolution. When the slave Abigail is forced from her children to take her mistress to safety, she discovers New Orleans has its own powers.

1857 New Orleansa city of unrest: Following tragedy, house girl Margot is sold just before her promised freedom. Desperate, she escapes and chases a whisper.... Remembrance.

RITA WOODS is a family doctor and the director of a wellness center. When she's not busy working or writing Dr. Woods spends time with her family or at the Homer Glen library where she served on the board for ten years. Remembrance is her first novel.
