Author Reading: Gloria Ann Wesley (-)

 

Author Reading: Gloria Ann Wesley

 

Join African Nova Scotian author, educator, and historian Gloria Ann Wesley for a passionate talk on her One Book Nova Scotia nominated title ‘If This Is Freedom’.

 

‘If This Is Freedom’ continues the story of struggle for Loyalist settlers in Nova Scotia after the American Revolutionary War. In the black settlement of Birchtown, times are especially hard for the former slaves. They face the difficulties of a hardscrabble existence and continued discrimination from their white counterparts.

 

Gloria will also present some of the historical context around the origins of African Nova Scotians – the Loyalists, Refugees of 1812, Maroons and immigrants who migrated to communities like Whitney Pier for work and better lives. Gloria’s companion books ‘Chasing Freedom’ and ‘If This Is Freedom’ share black history with us in a way that is both honest and emotional.

 

Everyone welcome.

 

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

 

One Book Nova Scotia is an annual province-wide book club that encourages Nova Scotians to read the same book and then meet for discussion and exchange of ideas in book clubs, coffee shops, libraries, etc.

More details on the novel If This Is Freedom continues the story of struggle for Loyalist settlers in Nova Scotia after the American Revolutionary War. In the black settlement of Birchtown, times are especially hard for the former slaves. They face the difficulties of a hardscrabble existence and continued discrimination from their white counterparts.

 

Like many desperate Birchtowners, Sarah Redmond has signed an indenture agreement, a work contract meant to protect her rights and ensure a living wage. Sarah’s employers, the Blyes, do not honour the agreement, and Sarah and her family are all but shattered when Sarah takes a wrong step – one she will come to regret as it sets off a chain of unusual events that put her under further pressure. With her faith in the settlement running dry and the Birchtowners abandoning the settlement, Sarah is perplexed and soon faces the taxing option of whether to hold on to the only real life she has ever known or let go. At once a stand-alone story and a companion to Gloria Ann Wesley’s previous novel, Chasing Freedom, this story about moral courage and the enduring strength of dreams shares history with us in a way that is both honest and emotional.
