Developments in the world of Florence Mills lore may not happen at the frenetic pace of the modern media but there are plenty of things happening from time to time so I hope to update this page regularly.

Yet another Florence Mills children's book, within the space of a few months!
At last Florence is being re-discovered.
 The latest is a Random House publication due in October

Written by Renee Watson Illustrated by Christian Robinson

Both new children's books are complementary, as Baby Flo (see below) deals with Florence's early childhood, while Harlem's Little Blackbird covers her later years
Both would be  excellent presents for a young niece or nephew or  grandchild


Subtitle: Florence Mills Lights up the Stage
Highly recommended! A beautiful book with delightful illustrations.
