Eileen Harrison Sanchez is now retired after a forty-year career in education. She started as a teacher and ended as a district administrator. A reader, a writer and a perennial – a person with a no-age mindset – Sanchez considers family and friends to be the most important parts of her life, followed by traveling and bird watching from her gazebo. Freedom Lessons is her first published novel. Eileen blogs as Gram's Book Club. She presents in person and virtually, to readers and educators at conferences, book clubs and in libraries on using historical fiction to teach social justice.
