Quote: Hersom to pitch her wonderful read to a crowd that matters.

Marjorie Hersom, the author of the critically acclaimed “Captive Bride,” confirmed her participation at the upcoming 2018 American Library Association (ALA) Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits, which will take place on February 9-12 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
The 2018 ALA Midwinter should provide Hersom the best opportunity to pitch her book to a crowd that matters. “Captive Bride” is a historical fiction novel based on the author’s family’s story (as narrated to her by her father) and on Lionel Berners Cholmondeley’s book “The History of the Bonin Islands from the Year 1827 to the Year 1876.”
Riene Santos Steffy of the Micronesian daily Marianas Variety commends “Captive Bride.” “Hersom’s book is a wonderful read,” wrote Steffy in her article. “There is a place for fiction writers and ‘Captive Bride’ is an example of the importance in fiction writing, as a way to escalate the literature of a people and their history – but it’s impossible without the primary source – oral history and secondary sources like historiography.”
The main character is Maria delos Santos, the author’s ancestor who was kidnapped from the Agaña River in Guam in 1843. “Hersom wrote Maria’s character true to a Chamorro woman’s spunk and determination.”
The author is scheduled for a book signing session on February 11, 2018, at 2:30-3:30 PM. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the author and talk about history with her.
“Captive Bride” is available at Amazon (
