Welcome to Day 6 of my virtual tour for my book The Locket: Surviving the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. I hope you will become a fan of this book and all my books. I love to write both fiction and nonfiction for children and teens and I'm currently working on my 24th book. Here's a short description of The Locket, plus the trailer for the book, just in case you haven't been following my tour or you've never heard of the book.
About the Book: The Locket: Surviving the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire
Grade 5–7—Galena, an eleven-year-old Russian-Jewish immigrant, lives in New York City with her family and works at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company factory with her older sister Anya. The factory pays low wages and has terrible working conditions, making Anya yearn to join a union. Soon a horrible fire guts the factory leaving Galena with painful, horrific memories. Follow author Suzanne Lieurance in this dramatic historical fiction novel, as she describes how Galena uses the support of friends, family, and Jewish traditions to inspire her to fight for workers rights.
