I couldn’t stop reading “No School.” I read the first 5 chapters after getting the book at the Book Signing and finished it before bedtime. It tells a story of the school closing through the eyes of a child. It’s a good read for children and adults. Jean Thornton
As true to form, I could not put your book down until completely finishing the story. Pat and Dennis Torrence
Unbelievable tale of perseverance, July 14, 2017 It’s unbelievable, when you think about it, that the Prince Edward County (VA) School system would close in 1959 rather than desegregate as mandated by Brown v. the School Board. But that’s just what happened, leaving Rita Odom Moseley, an African American woman, and others like her, without the possibility of receiving an education in their local school system. Only through the foresight of her mother, who took her to Blacksburg, Virginia, to attend school, was she able to receive any instruction at all. Many facing the same obstacles would have given up in despair, but Mrs. Moseley’s thirst for knowledge and education was not to be thwarted by the roadblocks thrown in her path. She is an inspiration to all, as you will see upon reading her life’s journey. Theodore J. Cohen
