Laugh, cry and share the spirit of a life’s journey-from its humble and often precarious beginnings on the Paradise cotton Plantation to the post-graduate stage of the illustrious University of California at Berkeley.

Travel with her as she shares the joy and pain of surviving her most pivotal times-the Great Depression, the Civil Rights Movement, racial and age discrimination. She even reveals the anguish of losing her husband, Joseph T. Hathorn. She weaves a narrative that is honest and compelling while simultaneously remaining optimistic of what can be achieved by anyone, no matter the conditions and hindrances. Challenges are common to all people traveling this uncertain road known as life.

Those challenges may involve issues dealing with sexism, racism, ageism or socioeconomic inequality. It may even just involve that unexplainable thing called man’s inhumanity to man.One reviewer made the following commentary on Dr. Hathorn’s book, Escape From Paradise: How to Win Against all Odds:“Dr. Hathorn’s Escape From Paradise is an outstanding inspirational journey for readers of all ages. It very well could have been entitled, No More Excuses: Who Wants To Escape From Paradise? Most of us spend a lifetime trying to get there or to a facsimile thereof.

Paradise is the cotton plantation where Dr. Hathorn and her relatives lived and eked out a bare existence in an effort to keep alive.”Education for Dr. Hathorn began in a non-descript, unpainted, one-room shack on the side of a dusty road bordering a cotton field. From this modest beginning she completed her elementary education in the parochial school in Yazoo City and high school at the Natchez College Baptist Seminary at Natchez, Mississippi.

She earned the Bachelor of Science and Master’s Degree at Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi. Later, defying age she earned the Doctor of Education degree from the University of California, at Berkeley at the age of 71, the oldest person to earn a degree in the school of education.Dr.

Hathorn has taught in the public and private schools of Mississippi and San Jose, California. Presently, she is an adjunct professor employed by Hinds Community College in the Adult Education Program, where her book was featured on April 16, 2014 in the National Library Week celebration. Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Mississippi presented Dr. Hathorn the Ageless Hero Award in a program hosted by Ed McMahon, former sidekick of Talk Show host Johnny Carson. Also, she was featured in the woman’s magazine, WHOA, Women Who Hear, Obey &Act On God’s Word, Laine Lawson Craft, publisher, (volume 1, issue 4, Fall 2010).

Dr. Hathorn has appeared on local television, radio talk shows and served as guest speaker for multiple womens groups. Her wisdom is sought after by those who desire to understand the past better, reign in the present and visualize the future.Escape From Paradise will inspire the reader to try the thing that has never been done before and to stick with a task to the end. Never quit! Never give in! Never give up! This inspirational book shows that to dream the impossible dream is a sure stairway to achieving that lifelong goal, even if it happens after the age of 65.
