African Ibeji and Annamaria Alfieri's Blog post

One final peek into our Author's signing held this past weekend can be found on Annamaria Alfieri's blog, Murder is Everywhere, where she shares her experience in Mechanicsburg, PA. It's fun to read about the adventure through the words of the author.

These African Ibeji were part of our decor for the event. They were gifted to our parents well over 50 years ago by friends that traveled to Africa. They represent a twin that passed away in infancy. These wooden dolls were created to honor the deceased twin. They were placed in a special location in the home, dressed, and symbolically fed in remembrance of the deceased twin. Additional information may be found here.
