Author La Vellea Samot makes her literary debut by telling the story of a young girl raised in a poverty stricken and turbulent home. She knows this story better than anyone, because she lived it. Her story comes alive in her new memoir, “A Time to Remember: The Life and Times of La Vellea Samot” (published by AuthorHouse).

“A Time to Remember” invites readers to experience hard life in Mississippi during the 1940s, ’50s, and beyond as Samot tells all in her emotional memoir. From hardships during her childhood to overcoming and finding success later in life, she takes readers on a journey which she hopes will inspire readers to never give up, no matter their circumstances.

“My book is relevant to today’s society because social injustice and racism are still alive, but seemingly not to the same extent as it was when I was a child, because I believe when one learns better they seem to do better,” Samot says.

Samot’s life was rife with difficulties from the beginning. With family members she describes as evil and an educational system “hell-bent on holding up” her progress, she had little in the way of a support system. While this had her near-defeated at one point, it also taught her a lesson no school could: to never give up.
