Anecia Sewer, an entrepreneur, researcher, and author born in the US Virgin Islands, has published her new book “Why Transfer Day, Anyway?”: a wonderful story for children from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

The author writes, “Karima is a thirteen-year-old with a voice like a sparrow. She is asked to lend her talents to a school program celebrating Transfer Day, a historical day in the United States Virgin Islands. Karima doesn’t want to sing and thinks the holiday is not very meaningful. ‘Why Transfer Day, Anyway?’ has a dual purpose. Firstly, it speaks to the importance of this holiday to residents of the United States Virgin Islands as it gently reminds youths of their rich legacy that should be embraced and valued. And secondly, it reminds Virgin Islanders living abroad of the sweetness of home.”

Published by Page Publishing, Anecia Sewer’s colorful book is a delightful addition to any children’s library.
Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Why Transfer Day, Anyway?” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
