New York Times bestselling author of the Oprah Book Club Pick Cane River, Lalita Tademy, brings us the evocative story of a once-enslaved man who buys his freedom after serving as a translator during the American Indian Wars, and his granddaughter, who sustains his legacy of courage.
Cow Tom, born into slavery in Alabama in 1810 and sold to a Creek Indian chief before his tenth birthday, possessed an extraordinary gift: the ability to master languages. As the new country developed westward, and Indians, settlers, and blacks came into constant contact, Cow Tom became a key translator for his Creek master and was hired out to US military generals.
Cow Tom’s legacy lived on in the courageous spirit of his granddaughter Rose. She rose to leadership of the family as they struggled against political and societal hostility intent on keeping blacks and Indians oppressed.
Written in two parts portraying the parallel lives of Cow Tom and Rose, Citizens Creek takes the reader deep into a little known chapter of American history. Lalita Tademy will discuss her research into Black and Creek Indian history and how she chose to weave the many connections into her novel.
Ms. Tademy’s book, Citizens Creek, will be available for sale and signing at the talk.
