Flossie Turner Lewis

Since its official release as an original Kindle eBook on July 4, 2010, LITTLE HOT MAMA by Flossie Turner Lewis and Paula Meseroll has been and continues to be the #1 Best Selling literacy story in America, and one of the very few autobiographies ever written by a black woman. The inspirational story of Flossie Turner Lewis, who was born during the darkest days of the Great Depression, raised in a traveling black entertainment family that played the carnival, chitlin’ and minstrel circuits during the 1930s and decided to learn how to read and write at the age of 65, is having a remarkable run.

Solidly on the Amazon Best Seller charts in the Literacy category for over eighteen months, LITTLE HOT MAMA appears to be hitting a chord with readers and stands as a testament to one woman’s inner strength and determination to change her life. Flossie’s story reached the #1 position once again during the 2011 Christmas holidays and continued to rank #1 into 2012.

Here is what people have been saying on Amazon about LITTLE HOT MAMA:

“Flossie Turner Lewis is a truly remarkable woman whose story kept me compulsively turning the pages of this wonderful book.”

#1 Best Seller in Literacy 1/5/12

“What a wonderful story of survival and strength…”

“This strikingly honest autobiography presents the memoir of a remarkable and gifted woman who, in an outrageously difficult situation, took all the resources that life gave her and created a positive and redemptive reality. It also offers a window into the world of Jim Crow era Black entertainment, a world that is in danger of being forgotten today.”

“Flossie is a woman to admire with a personality that one can't help but love.”

To help support and highlight the importance of literacy in America, the authors, their agent and their publisher are donating fifty cents of the proceeds of every book sold to ProLiteracy.
