Allison Lassieur Signing Journey to the Promised Land

Allison Lassieur will be signing Journey to the Promised Land A Story of the Exodusters (I Am America series).

Hattie Jacobs has a secret dream: to go to school to become a teacher. But her parents were formerly enslaved and are struggling to survive in Nashville, Tennessee, after Reconstruction. When the Jacobs family joins the Great Exodus of 1879 to Kansas, their journey in search of a better life is filled with danger and hardship. This story is filled with cliffhangers and wonderful characters to care about.

“This well-written volume fills a major gap in historical fiction.” — Kirkus starred review
