Still I Stand
On December 4, 2016 | 0 Comments
We continue to publish books of extraordinary significance every year by aspiring young authors, especially those in Africa with less opportunities. As we are a small publishing house with limited overhead, we are ideally placed for satisfying the needs of unpublished authors by utilizing the latest technology in the production of publication as an alternative to the larger publishing house.
Village Tales Publishing is proud to add another author to our author-family, Mr. Roosevelt Richards. A very warm welcome to Mr. Richards, whose debut book of poems, STILL I STAND, will be released in January 2017.
Roosevelt Richards is a Liberian author, born in Monrovia. With a natural passion for poems, Richards started writing songs, but quickly shifted to poetry. His two favorite writers are Edgar Allen Pole and Emily Dickinson. He penned his first poem, Dear Martin Luther King, while working full-time at the Royal Hotel to finance his college education. Richards had lost his father, Napoleon F. Richards, who had a huge impact on his upbringing.
Mr. Richards earned his BBA in Accounting and Public Administration in 2012.
This book comes into publication on pure perseverance; not able to find a local publisher in Monrovia, Richards continued to write while he worked full-time. Then in 2016, he stumbled upon a Liberian-own publishing house on LinkedIn. Still I Stand is his debut literary work.
Roosevelt Richards lives in Monrovia with his family.
