Dear Friends,

Please join us for a special evening at the Princeton Public Library and meet author Sharon Draper, the five-time Coretta Scott King Book Award-winner and former National Teacher of the Year recipient on Tuesday October 24, 2017 at 6 pm.

As one of the community partners in Princeton University's Princeton & Slavery Project, the library is presenting a series of programs this fall. The centerpiece of this series at the library is this appearance by Ms. Draper. She will discuss her historical novel for young adults, "Copper Sun" which is the story of 15-year-old Amari, whose happy life with her family in Ghana is destroyed when she is stolen from her village, imprisoned, and ultimately taken to America and sold into slavery.

The Princeton & Slavery Project investigates Princeton University's historical involvement with the institution of slavery. For more information and listing of additional events please visit

Admission is free. Seating will begin at 5 pm in the library's Community Room on the first floor. The talk will start at 6 pm. Copies of "Copper Sun" will be sold after the talk. The library is located at 65 Witherspoon Street, Princeton, NJ. For more information call 609-924-9529 or visit
