Color Struck Selected for Required Reading at Marygrove College!

Words cannot convey the honor of receiving an email from Professor Johnson, expressing her opinion of Color Struck. Her own touching personal story explains why she could relate to our novel. We are deeply grateful for being able to reach and connect with a diversity of people, and hearing their personal accounts and testimonies is a highlight for us.

Professor Johnson has selected Color Struck as required reading for her students this fall. WHAT AN HONOR!

We send our sincere thanks to her and we hope our book will enlighten and inspire all who read it.
