Dr. Jefferson will present a brief history of the ancient kingdom of Nubia with an emphasis on little-known facts. Did you know that fashion and appearance were so important to Nubians many of them carried a ring of small iron personal tools that included a nail file and tweezers? Find out how Nubia inspired the creation of a new children’s book series.
Dr. Stephanie Jefferson is a licensed psychologist in the state of California. Her specialty was working with children and adolescents struggling with serious emotional disturbances. In July 2009 she retired to pursue a career writing children’s literature. She says her “voice” and story ideas best fit children ages10 -14.
