)-- Author of, The Red Feather, Sherry “Ms. Leddy” Milam will be featured at several venues throughout the city of New Orleans for two weeks starting September 12-25. She will be reading from her new children’s book The Red Feather which is written for all children with an emphasis on 4-8 year old boys. It tells the story of the historical Mardi Gras Indians and why they play such an important role in New Orleans today. She will be backed up with the music and personal appearances of Big Chief Kevin Goodman and the Flaming Arrows. Ms. Leddy, as she’s known by the children of New Orleans who have had the pleasure of being in the audience of one of Ms. Leddy’s readings, is looking for any schools in the Greater New Orleans area that would like for her to come read from her debut children’s book The Red Feather. She has several open dates, but they are limited and will be assigned on a first come first served basis.
A red feather tumbles down the street on a sweet Mardi Gras morning; a curious boy follows. The story is about a young boy who notices a red feather floating in the air. He watches it rise and fall when a man stops him and asks if he knows the story of the red feather. As the man explains the history of the Mardi Gras Indians, a parade starts right in front of them. The music begins and he is lead on a true and magical adventure with New Orleans' best kept secret: The Mardi Gras Indians.
As the parade moves down the street the neighborhood comes alive with color, music and dance. At the end of the parade the man reminds the boy that all of this was made possible because of the help rendered by the Native Americans to the African slaves.
