PRLog - Jan. 15, 2012 - From Mrs. Walker:

I will be presenting at the Clinton  Library. The Friends of the Library invited me to talk about the memoir I am working on and looking for a publisher. The title is Daybreak In Mississippi. It tells the story of an African- American female growing up in Mississippi during the 40s, 50s & 60s.

The date is January 17, 2012, at 12:00 pm. (Noon).

((Bio from her site http://www.blueprintsofsirmichael.com/ :))

J. Moffett Walker, a resident of Clinton, was born and reared in rural Edwards, Mississippi. She earned a Bachelor's degree from Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi, a Master's degree in Personnel and Guidance from Purdue University, Hammond, Indiana, and completed an additional 30 hours of coursework at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. During her elementary school years, she became fascinated with putting words together and rearranging those same words to express different thoughts and feelings. Her parents (who taught her in the elementary grades), her husband, and her three sons all encouraged her to pursue her writing dreams. Moreover, the late Dr. Margaret  Alexander Walker (JSU) inspired her to write, and the late Professor Charles Tinkham (PU) motivated her to publish. She currently enjoys speaking to book clubs, schools, churches, and other social groups.

Ms. Walker cherishes having had the opportunity to teach English and social studies in McComb, Mississippi, and English and reading in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, on an Indian reservation. In Gary, Indiana, she taught English for several years and counseled middle school students for 29 years. Walker founded the Gary Writers' Workshop and helped four writers to publish their works. The author comments that: "Writing is a gratifying art I truly love to share." You may e-mail her at: threesons333@aol.com.
