... with Nancy LeSourd
"Liberty Letters® is inspired by my heart for America and a commitment to its cornerstone values of courage, ingenuity, liberty, and faith."
Nancy LeSourd first thought of writing this series several years before September 11th, 2001, to strengthen this next generation to live courageously in their communities and to make choices for justice, mercy, truth and liberty in the events of their lives. Such choices by ordinary persons living in extraordinary times form the bedrock of American history.
She dreamed of accomplishing this by taking the reader back through the history of our country to explore key events from the perspective of ordinary teenagers. There in the midst of America's journey of freedom, the characters in each story discover courage, ingenuity, faith and friendship as they are tested in the challenges of their day, just as the readers might if they were suddenly thrust into such a position.
An author and attorney living in the nation's capital area, Nancy LeSourd grew up in Atlanta, Georgia during the turbulent civil rights era of the sixties, where she learned first-hand as a teenager the impact that a young person can have on history. She earned her B.A. in political science from Agnes Scott College and holds a Master of Arts in Secondary Education with an emphasis on American History from Tufts University.
A William Robertson Coe fellow in American history, she taught history in middle school and high school for five years before earning her J. D. from Georgetown University Law Center. For the last twenty-four years, she has practiced law with Gammon & Grange, P.C. in the metro Washington D.C. area, heading up the firm's intellectual property practice.
Nancy LeSourd currently lives with her husband, Jeff, and their children, Luke and Cate at antebellum Evergreen Farm in the Quaker community of Lincoln, Virginia, the site of the adventures of the Underground Railroad book in the Liberty Letters® series.
