January 10 2023
12.20pm - 1pm
Venue: School Hall
Classes 5 upwards and the wider school community have been invited to
attend the book launch of Leilani Taneus-Miller’s debut teen novel Brown
Girl as an educational part of the school day on the last Friday
before half term. Parents, carers, teachers and the wider Waldorf community are
welcome to join this event. (Please RSVP for seating arrangements).
Published at the beginning of January, the book has already been well
received, garnering positive reviews in its first week and with a Harper’s
Magazine interview due out later this year, alongside a London book launch.
Race, equality and mental health are key themes addressed in the book,
which tie in with the School’s Equality & Diversity Mandate Group criteria.
Leilani, a Steiner Waldorf Teacher at Edinburgh Steiner School, will share her
experience of the writing to publication process and what inspired the book.
There will be a Q&A and book signing afterwards.
You can also meet Leilani at the Friday Market on 10th February, where
the book will be available to buy.
