In 2009, scholars at Yale University came across a startling manuscript: the memoir of Austin Reed, a free black man born in the 1820s who spent most of his early life ricocheting between forced labor in prison and forced labor as an indentured servant. Lost for more than 150 years, the handwritten document is the first known prison memoir written by an African American.

The Spell of Twelve is a tale that tells of the adventure of Prince Egbert XII who disappears from the castle on Christmas night. Written in the form of a traditional folk tale, Egbert's quest is to solve the riddle of an orange before Twelfth Night and his twelfth birthday. Along the way, he avoids dangers and forges an alliance with a miller, a sparrow, and a girl named Egnaro.
