Annette Laing

Dr. Annette Laings Non-Boring History
Author and Presenter
Meet British-born Annette Laing, author of the Snipesville Chronicles MG/YA time-travel series, and a funny and popular visiting author in schools!
Annette is also a published academic historian, most notable for her work on African-American religion. She left her tenured post at Georgia Southern University in 2008 to pursue her work in public history, and as a novelist.
Annette Laing's entertaining books, school visits, and speeches engage audiences, and lead everyone to think historically.
Annette's series, The Snipesville Chronicles, has been described by Kirkus Reviews as "clever and charming time-travel adventure. When Hannah and Alex Dias, upper middle-class transplants from San Francisco to the small town of Snipesville, meet ambitious local kid Brandon Clark, they immediately find themselves in World War II England, an unlikely time and place to think over their 21st century lives. But that's what happens, over three centuries, four books, and an original and compelling plotline.
