Join us to hear local author Tamara Carson speak about Juneteenth and her research and writing process.  Journey to Juneteenth: Collected Writings is a short collection that includes short stories, poetry, and a choral reading all inspired by Tamara Carson’s rich family legacy based in East Texas.  It is a book that celebrates family, faith and freedom – the 3 foundational elements of Juneteenth Day.

Tamara Carson (author/playwright) received her B.A. and M.Ed. at the University of San Diego.  She wrote and produced her first stage play, Blessed – The Musical, in 2010; and has since written two books.  Journey to Juneteenth: Collected Writings is her most recent published work.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase for $20.
