On Saturday, March 20th, Ms. Jaydria Taylor will be at the Jackson Parish Library for a book signing of her debut children’s novel “I am a Queen” which gives and inspiring and empowering message to young girls. The 2017 JHHS graduate, who is scheduled to graduate from Southern University this May, is the daughter of former Jonesboro resident, James D. Taylor Jr. and Angela (Nichols) Taylor of Lake Providence and the granddaughter of Jonesboro residents, Cloteal and James D. Taylor Sr.
“My hope is that this book will uplift the next generation of young girls,” said Taylor when asked what inspired her to write the book. “It is designed to promote positive values, etiquette, kindness and gratitude.”
The vivacious Taylor, who was voted Southern University’s “Miss Junior” for the school year 2019-20 looks forward to reuniting with family and old friends at the signing which begins at 10:30am. She also hopes that the families of young girls in Jackson Parish and the surrounding area will take advantage of the opportunity to give their daughters something that she knows will be beneficial in their development.
