Inspired by the authors’ own fam­i­ly his­to­ries, The Thread Col­lec­tors is a rich his­tor­i­cal nov­el set dur­ing the Civ­il War about two women — one Black and yearn­ing for free­dom in New Orleans, the oth­er a Jew­ish abo­li­tion­ist in New York — whose resource­ful sewing to sup­port their com­mu­ni­ties leads them on unex­pect­ed, dan­ger­ous jour­neys as they fight to bring their beloveds home from the front.

Shau­nna J. Edwards has a Bachelor of Arts in lit­er­a­ture from Har­vard Col­lege and a J.D. from NYU School of Law. A for­mer cor­po­rate lawyer, she now works in diver­si­ty, equi­ty and inclu­sion. She is a native Louisian­ian, raised in New Orleans, and cur­rent­ly lives in Harlem with her hus­band.The Thread Col­lec­tors is her first nov­el.

Alyson Rich­man is the USA Today and #1 inter­na­tion­al best­selling author of sev­er­al his­tor­i­cal nov­els. Richman grad­u­at­ed from Welles­ley Col­lege with a degree in art his­to­ry and Japan­ese stud­ies. She is an accom­plished painter and her nov­els com­bine her deep love of art, his­tor­i­cal research and trav­el.
