Thankfully, Sue’s son- my cousin- Frank Eakin recently launched www.12YearsASlaveBook.com

In addition to the audiobook, which was voiced by Academy Award and Emmy Award winning actor Louis Gossett, Jr., the website also features a series of extras: maps, pictures, audio clips, biographical information, and a stellar blog that includes, among other things, the story of Solomon’s living great-great-great grandson.

If you are interested in buying the definitive copy of the book, don’t be misled by the trade paperbacks: Aunt Sue’s final edition was just released, and it can be purchased on Amazon.
