Principal Sir or Ma'am:

My name is Jason A. Spencer- Edwards, and I am an author. I write books because the statistics say that children of color are not reading. I wanted desperately to do something about this-so I created a publishing company with another author Kateline Gresseau. Our books are responsibly written, and deal with engrossing social issues that even appeal to reluctant readers. If you have an opportunity, take a look at the following article which illustrates the impact of our writing.

All of our books are Board of Education approved and can be found on FAMIS. I know our literature can benefit your school, and I'd love an opportunity to tell you how and arrange a free author's visit. I can be reached at 718 637-7222 or email: jasps@msn.com.

Thanking you in advance,

Jason A. Spencer-Edwards

The objective of these novels is to teach children a life lesson without them being cognizant. We also provide author workshopnovels, thus allowing the students an opportunity to interact with the writers. Furthermore, each book has been used as a form of Biblio-therapy: tackling the issues that are relevant to our communities today.
