March 29, 2012 - PRLog -- SAVANNAH, Ga., March 29, 2012 -  Author Dawn Baker is taking her message of empowering women to colleges and universities. This week she held talks at East Georgia College in Swainsboro, GA and at Savannah State University in Savannah, GA.

Tuesday, March 27th, hundreds of students and people from the community crowded into the Gambrell Auditorium at East Georgia College.  After Baker’s address, they asked questions about setting goals and dealing with setbacks.  Baker then met with supporters while she sold and signed copies of her book, Dawn’s Daughter: Everything A Woman Needs To Know. Then, she sat down with about thirty students to get to know them better and offer them a place to turn for advice.  After about an hour of more questions, the day was over.  Baker talked to some students who credited her with helping them find themselves.  Administrators say, “She definitely changed lives."

The next day, Savannah State University opened its doors to Baker.  It was a much smaller, more intimate setting in the art gallery, but students, the staff and community appeared to hang on her every word.  Baker took questions from students who also asked about setting goals, but also asked about what to expect once they enter the workforce and how to avoid many mistakes that can end their careers before they even begin.

Dawn’s Daughter, Baker’s premiere self-help book for teen and young adult females, made its debut on November 8, 2011. Some of the tools that the book includes are: becoming strong and independent; setting and achieving realistic goals; and understanding the value of a good education and more. The book has gotten rave reviews from students, educators, and parents.  A few weeks ago, the book came in number 3 on The Book lady Bookstore’s best seller’s list.

Baker is a news anchor with WTOC-TV in Savannah.  In her spare time, she supports her community by hosting multiple charitable events and serving as a board member for various non-profit organizations.

Books  are available on, or eBook available on the Nook, Kindle and for downloads at  Books are also available in Savannah at The Book Lady, Diaspora Marketplace, E. Shaver Bookseller, and Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, and First Headquarters-Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia.

20% of the proceeds from Dawn’s Daughter will go toward The Dawning of A Miracle Scholarship Fund for high school females diagnosed with chronic/life-threatening illnesses.
