Between the Lines Reads “Island Queen”

There will be afternoon groups that meet at the Aurora Public Library on August 25th @ 1:00pm and at the Dillsboro Public Library on August 26th @ 1:00pm. Both will be discussing Island Queen by Vanessa Riley.

From the bustling port cities of the West Indies to the forbidding drawing rooms of London’s elite, Island Queen is a sweeping epic of an adventurer and a survivor who answered to no one but herself as she rose to power and autonomy against all odds, defying rigid eighteenth-century morality and the oppression of women as well as people of color. It is an unforgettable portrait of a true larger-than-life woman who made her mark on history.
