From the publisher:
Here are three celebrations of family across the generations, from Emmy Award-winner, columnist, and NPR commentator Janus Adams.
Based on an article first published in Essence magazine, "Going Home" is a classic tale of immigrants in the promised land. Adams retraces her childhood roots in the civil rights movement in the U.S. back to the dreams of her great-grandparents in their ancestral Caribbean home.
"Mom's Beautiful Day" explores the relationship between caregivers and their loved ones with Dementia; what began in her newspaper column as the story of a day's outing with her mother has gone on to inspire caregivers everywhere.
In "A Day for Soup", a bad cold and a hearty lunch whisk Adams and her elders off to adventure in this expedition from family lore to Cajun Country and the meaning of soup.
And, in "Fanning the Spirits," a family loss turns epic as life's passages writ personal reveal the story of a people writ large--and momentus.
Adams' other books include Glory Days: 365 Inspired Moments in African-American History and Sister Days: 365 Inspired Moments in African American Women's History. She is the publisher/producer of BackPax, a children's media company.
