Whisperers of Secrets:  A Community of Short Stories, the latest literary offering from Buffalo  writer Priscilla Y. Hill, will be available at her first book signing on Sunday, December 1at 1 p.m. at New Covenant United Church of Christ, 459 Clinton Street. 

The new anthology is a sweet nightstand read and down time page-turner to be cherished and passed on. The stories span a timeline from pre-Civil War America to present future and lend palpable insight to nuances of the African in America experience from the perspective of the Great Migration from the Jim Crow South to a better life “up north.”

The book is also a resounding anthem to the significance of Buffalo, New York – an Underground Railroad terminus, former steel mill city and Hill’s beloved hometown – in this pivotal chapter of American history. 

“My passion is for disseminating knowledge and information about African American life and experience through my storytelling.  I also think of my writing as a journal I keep about my life journey,” Hill says.
