PRH Education/Common Reads presents:
unCommon Authors is a monthly video series highlighting exceptional and
unique authors talking about their books.
River Sing Me Home is a redemptive story of a mother’s gripping journey across the Caribbean to find her stolen children and piece her family back together. Watch author Eleanor Shearer discuss the book:
Eleanor Shearer is a mixed-race writer and the granddaughter of Windrush generation immigrants. She splits her time between London and Ramsgate on the English coast so that she never has to go too long without seeing the sea. For her Master’s degree in Politics at the University of Oxford, Eleanor studied the legacy of slavery and the case for reparations, and her fieldwork in St. Lucia and Barbados helped inspire her first novel.
