Stories of our Lives: A Literary Series Marie Guillory

Tuesday, May 29 at 2:00-3:00p
LOCATION CHANGED TO NE LIBRARY 330 7th St NE (please let callers know)

Lovey Marie Guillory was born in a small hamlet in rural Louisiana. Her hurried birth on the kitchen floor of her parents` farm house in Bois Mallet is the opening chapter of her life and her book, "Born on the Kitchen Floor in Bois Mallet." She says, "I couldn`t wait to be born and I have been rushing all my life since then. I did slow down to write this first book, however. It took time to research the facts and retell the complex history of my family and pay tribute to the slave matriarch who made it possible for generations of Guillorys to be born in freedom rather than bondage." We plan to discuss Born on the Kitchen Floor in Bois Malletand also have a discussion with those who attend on their family story as well.

Reservations required, 7 places taken, 43 available.
