AOBF Student and TerryWelcome to the site of writer, Terry Farish.   

I’m here with students at Hardy Middle School in Washington D.C. An Open Book Foundation invited me to speak about The Good Braider to eighth grade classes. This remarkable foundation presented each student with a copy of the book.

The Good Braider, published by Skyscape and Recorded Books,  is now available in paperback and audio.
