Virtual Reading Event


Shereá D. Burnett (aka Shereá Denise) was born and raised in Alamance County, North Carolina. She identifies as Afro-Indigenous and is a proud citizen of the Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation. Shereá attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she majored in Political Science and Afro-American Studies. She also minored in Social and Economic Justice. Shereá received her Juris Doctorate Degree from Elon University School of Law.

Shereá Denise is a Social Worker at heart. She spends her days directing efforts intended to assist people who are experiencing homelessness and her evenings as an Adjunct Professor at a local college. She primarily engages in projects and activities focused on Women of Color, Children of Color, and those identifying as part of the LGBTQ+ Community. Shereá serves in various capacities for local nonprofit and community-oriented organizations. She is interested and actively involved in community service and advocacy work throughout the state of North Carolina. In addition to writing, Shereá is passionate about literacy programming for children, promoting the work done by Black and Indigenous women, and raising awareness about the issues impacting marginalized communities. ​


Shereá personally tapped Haelee to aid her in her literacy programming for children. Haelee will be participating in a virtual reading event where she will debut her first ever illustrated children’s book, The Rules of a Little Boss: A book of self-love. You don’t want to miss this if you have elementary school aged children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews.


Details are provided below and on the flyer. Hope to see you there.
