A Voice For Kanzas

My friend, Debra, signs my copy of her first novel.

I stopped by her book launch party, held in a historic brick building with
exposed rafters and wagon wheel lights.

"A Voice For Kanzas"
  A 13 year old girl moves to Kansas territory during the border war years,
when pro-slavers and abolitionists were fighting
to see if Kansas would enter the Union as a free or slave state. 

Looks like a good book, and I can't wait to read it!

PS-  It was a great story!  It's perfect for young readers!
