Annette Laing

Annette Laing is author of The Snipesville Chronicles MG/YA time-travel series, a historian, a popular schools presenter, and the proud owner of an authentic British accent.
While professor of early American history at Georgia Southern University, Annette turned the conference center into an English town in World War II, for TimeShop, an immersive play and joyous day of time travel for hundreds of elementary and middle schoolers. TimeShop was profiled by the Associated Press, and inspired Annette’s MG/YA series, The Snipesville Chronicles.

Praised as “clever and charming time-travel adventure” by Kirkus Reviews, the Snipesville Chronicles series doesn’t shy away from exploring race, class, and gender. Annette\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s books are used in schools ranging from West Pelzer Elementary in rural South Carolina, to University School of Milwaukee, a nationally-ranked prep school in Wisconsin.

Annette now works full-time presenting highly engaging history programs in schools, speaking to adults, and writing. She lives in Wisconsin, but is based in Georgia January through March. Visit www.annettelaing.com for more!\\\\\\">
