Maria Nhambu for "America's Daughter"

  • SubText Books 6 West 5th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Join us in the store on Thursday, September 28th at 7:00 PM for a reading and signing with Maria Nhambu, author of "America's Daughter," wherein she shares her amazing story. She's a dynamic and passionate speaker, and this event is not to be missed!

Maria Nhambu, or Nhambu as she prefers to be called, grew up in an orphanage in Tanzania, East Africa, and endured abuse and neglect until she left at age 19 with her American teacher, Catherine Murray Mamer, to study at St. Catherine’s College (now University) in St. Paul, Minnesota. "America’s Daughter" is the second volume of her Dancing Soul Trilogy following "Africa’s Child," published in 2016.

"America’s Daughter" continues Nhambu’s story as she confronts a new culture, learns about race in America, and begins her teaching career. Marriage and children give her the family she longs to have. She finds innovative ways of sharing the riches of African culture through dance and education and discovers part of her identity.
