I’m so thrilled to share that Rita Lorraine Hubbard’s New Voices Award-Winning debut Hammering for Freedom received a starred review in Kirkus!

Kirkus said:

The true story of William “Bill” Lewis, a man born into slavery who wouldn’t rest until his whole family was free…

 

The text skillfully includes details about laws governing the lives of enslaved people (Bill travels with a white escort; he buys his wife’s freedom first so that their future children will be born free) while keeping readers hooked through every step of Bill’s plan. Rich illustrations help readers imagine life in the 1800s and show the complexity of Bill’s situation. Readers will root for Bill to the utterly satisfying end.

 

Powerful and uplifting; William Lewis should be a household name.

Hammering for Freedom is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and your favorite local indie bookstore. You can also visit Rita online at www.ritahubbard.com.

Congratulations again, Rita!
