Fort Lauderdale, FL (January 14, 2014) – Co-authors Camille Burke, Stacey Pacouloute, and Mellissa Thomas are hosting a book talk to launch their Faded Diamonds paperback and digital release Saturday, January 25, 2014, at the African American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC) at 2650 Sistrunk Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, FL, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. to commemorate National Mentoring Month.
Faded Diamonds is a disruptive young adult novel following local pregnant misfit Leila Sudders, chronicling the staggering effects of the broken home on the children raised in it: self-loathing, mental illness, abuse, and their need for mentorship. Readers also get an inside look at the rigors of social work through a counselor's tireless effort to mentor underprivileged young women despite their desperate attempt to be strong in the face of their issues, which embodies the essence of National Mentoring Month (NMM).
Join us this Sunday as we "SPOTLIGHT" another great author.
