Book Signing Event: The Pearl of Portsmouth featuring author Tammi Truax and Illustrator Rev. Lillian Buckley
Portsmouth, NH – The Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire (BHTNH) is excited to announce a captivating book signing event on Friday, November 3, 2023, from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM at 222 Court Street, Portsmouth. This special occasion will feature author Tammi Truax and Illustrator Rev. Lillian Buckley as they discuss and sign copies of their remarkable book, “The Pearl of Portsmouth: A Story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”
Join us for a profoundly insightful event that offers a unique opportunity to delve into the enduring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and retrace the historic visit he made to Portsmouth on October 26, 1952. The heart of this event centers around Dr. King’s pivotal sermon, “Going Forward by Going Backward,” a moment in history vividly brought to life within the pages of “The Pearl of Portsmouth,” a brilliantly illustrated picture book.
This literary work artfully reimagines the momentous day of October 26, 1952, providing a colorful and heartfelt glimpse into a significant moment in a small New England town. As we reflect on the profound significance of this event, it is a stark reminder that in 1952, the full impact of Dr. King’s words had not yet been fully realized, and the notion of his enduring legacy and eventual martyrdom was beyond imagination. “The Pearl of Portsmouth” allows us to step back in time, offering a deeper understanding of the timeless power of Dr. King’s words and their far-reaching impact on generations to come.
At this event, author Tammi Truax and Illustrator Rev. Lillian Buckley will share their insights into the creation of “The Pearl of Portsmouth” and offer attendees a unique opportunity to engage in a meaningful discussion about Dr. King’s visit and its historical significance. The authors will also be signing copies of their book, which will be available for purchase at the BHTNH gift shop or through the provided registration form.
