Reynolds-Jackson to Host Black Women Authors’ Showcase in Honor of International Women’s Day

Assemblywoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) will host a Black Women Authors’ Showcase at the Trenton Public Library this month in honor of International Women’s Day. 

The event will feature Marie Antoinette, author of “A Girl Named Job”, Gail Talliaferro, author of “The Tally Family”, and Yolanda Landy Robinson, author of “Don’t Be Bitter, Be Better”.

“I encourage all residents to join us for this event and hear from these entrepreneurial women who will be sharing their journeys,” said Reynolds-Jackson. “We want this event not only to celebrate women doing amazing things, but hopefully serve as an inspiration to those who aspire to greater and more meaningful things in life, but have been too afraid to take that leap of faith.”

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at the Trenton Public Library, 120 Academy St., Trenton. Talliaferro will host a reading circle for her children’s book, while Antoinette and Robinson will discuss the inspiration for their books.
