About this event

Meet Vanessa Riley, a Southern, Irish, Trini girl, who, besides being an award-winning author of historical fiction, holds a Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering and an MS in Industrial Engineering and Management.

ISLAND QUEEN is a novel based on the compelling life of Dorothy "Doll" Kirwan Thomas, who rose from slavery to become the wealthiest woman landowner in the early 1800s Carribean. She advocated for women's rights and successfully repealed the unfair taxation of free persons of color on the colony of Demerara.
