In this 200-page published book of riddles dedicated to Liberia, Africa’s oldest and first republic, author and publisher, Ophelia Lewis brings to life a unique perspective—the history of her native country. LIBERIA UNSCRABBLED is a book of Puzzles & Trivia and Word Search.
It presents amazing brainteasers and outlook on Liberia— a first, and tangs up the reading horizons for those interested in Liberia and its history and culture via the trivia flicks that are presented. For those not from the country and interested in solving puzzles, and hence a unique history of an African country founded by freed men of color in the 19th century, Ms. Lewis work will amaze you!
Ophelia Lewis, in constructing her latest book, does an excellent job in laying out the details in this five-chapter paperback. Lewis, author of Montserrado Stories has also written two novels, three children’s books, a book of poetry, a book of essay and two collections of short stories.
With much chronological implication, historically speaking, Ophelia Lewis took time and with meticulous concentration and interest in putting together a book which is both amusing and detailed. Liberia Unscrabbled is therefore an educative workshop on happenings traversing Liberia’s past and present. Lewis latest effort, says Editors Guild Liberia, “will be an important instructional material also for students interested in knowing the major contours and events of Africa’s oldest republic the last decades before.”
Ophelia S. Lewis, founder of Village Tales Publishing and author of more than ten books, is working assiduously to take her firm— Village Tales Publishing to the next level in the literary industry. Book is avaliable on amazon.
