EILEEN SANCHEZ is a retired teacher with 40 years of experience in public education. She will be discussing her debut book "FREEDOM LESSONS"(2019). She draws on her own remarkable experience as a young, white teacher in the Jim Crow South during desegregation, to write her immersive work of fiction inspired by those events. The result is an unusually authentic exploration of a snapshot in history through the eyes of characters that are relatable and unmistakably human—living lives and navigating relationships against the backdrop of extreme societal upheaval. According to Kirkus Reviews - "An intermittently potent illustration of the formidable obstacles to equality that remained―and persist―post-Brown v. Board of Education.”
