National Book Festival

A former teacher, editor, and the first women editorial writer for Norfolk's Virginian Pilot, Joy Hakim is the author of the Michener Prize-winning ten-volume series: "A History of US" (Oxford University Press, 1993-1995). Her new book, "Freedom: A History of US" (Oxford University Press, Nov. 2002), will be the companion book to the upcoming 16-part PBS miniseries, "Freedom." When she is not writing and researching at her home in Virginia, Hakim spends time in Colorado sharing stories with her grandchildren.
