misc_none 2:00 PM Special Guest Pearl Cleage Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Let's Paint the Library Red!

Come meet Pearl Cleage, African American novelist, playwright, poet, journalist and activist, for a special presentation, “We Speak Your Names: A Celebration.”

It’s the story of the creation of a "praise poem" for Oprah Winfrey's 2005 celebration of legendary African American women. It includes the author's experience driving across America to get to the celebration, as well as the meaning of these women's lives. Ms. Cleage offers a performance of the poem, which has been on the Essence magazine bestseller list for most of the two years since it was written.

Pearl. Cleage, a resident of Atlanta and a graduate of Howard University, Clark Atlanta University and Spellman College, “calls herself a 60’s child without irony or regret”. Her first novel, What Looks Like Crazy on a Rainy Day, was an Oprah Winfrey Book Club selection which spent nine weeks on the NY Times Bestseller’ List. She has several books to her credit  – Baby Brothers Blues, Babylon Sisters, I Wish I had a Red Dress, Just Wanna Testify, Seen it All and Done the Rest, Some Things I thought I would Never Do; and her most recent title, a memoir, Things I should Have Told My Daughter.

She is the author of more than a dozen plays including Blues for an Alabama Sky, Flyin’ West, The Nacirema Society and most recently, Tell Me My Dream (2015). Her plays have been performed at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery and the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta.

Following the presentation, please join us for a book signing and reception. In celebration of our special guest, we encourage everyone to wear red!  

For more information, please call 208-7860 or 208-7097.
