Cane River was selected as Oprah’s Book of the Month Club in 2001 and was on the New York Times Best Sellers List. Her second novel, Red River, is also an NYT best seller and was selected as San Francisco’s One City, One book for 2007. Tademy is currently working on her third novel.
During the day, Tademy will visit with students and teachers. At 6:30 o’clock, she will speak to the public in a free lecture in the Ran Kiper Performing Arts Center on the grounds of Caddo Magnet High
