ALBANY, N.Y. - Aug. 4, 2014 - PRLog -- Atombank Books will publish its first in a series of children’s non-fiction books on September 2, 2014. It has signed author John Briggs to create four middle-grade biographies for its Big Biography series. The first of these, due for print and ebook release, is Mary Dyer: Friend of Freedom, about the first woman in America executed for her religious beliefs.

Mary Dyer, Friend of Freedom is the first children’s book about this little-known civil rights leader who inspired Colonial leaders and English kings to guarantee religious freedom for everyone.

“We’re excited to make this our first book,” said Atombank founder Amy Tombank. “Mary Dyer was an amazing woman we think children will love to read about. We’ve already gotten interest from teachers and librarians.”

Schools, teachers, and homeschooling parents who purchase copies are eligible for educational materials to help their students get the most out of the book. Teacher discounts are available directly by contacting Atombank Books. Mary Dyer, Friend of Freedom can be incorporated into lessons on Colonial America, the First Amendment, civil rights, and women’s history. The book is 102 pages, with 14 sidebars and 35 illustrations, maps, and paintings.

“My favorite books as a kid were the biographies,” says author John Briggs. “I also grew up on stories of Mary Dyer, thanks to my great-grandmother, so I guess it was inevitable I combine the two.”

John Briggs is a veteran journalist and former nationally syndicated children's TV critic. As a TV critic, he also reviewed history programs for The History Channel, PBS, and other channels. He is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators.

Mary Dyer, yxpjq Friend of Freedom will initially be available through Amazon and Kindle, and then bookstores throughout the country in both print and electronic form.

Future subjects in the Big Biography series include Judy Garland, Pete Seeger, and Jim Thorpe. All books are being edited by Albany Editing
