Madam C. J. Walker

Just out as an eBook is the second edition of my brief biography of Madam C. J. Walker! I wrote it for young readers, but it is also a great quick read for busy adults who want to learn about a washerwoman who turned herself into a powerhouse.  Orphaned at an early age, Madam C. J. Walker, who was born Sarah Breedlove, told people, “I had to make my own living and my own opportunity! But I made it!”  During her lifetime, Madam Walker made lots of money; she had spent some of it on fancy cars, clothes, a gold-leaved grand piano and harp, and a mansion. But she also used her money to help make life better for other people.  The book is available online, including at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/248209#longdescr
