The Charlotte Writers Club will celebrate the publication of Carolyn Noell's memoir, "The Medicine Man's Daughter," with a reading at the Warehouse Performing Arts Center in Cornelius on Sunday.
This is a coming-of-age story of Dayou Tucker, a Liberian refugee who came to Charlotte to escape civil war.
Jan Blodgett, archivist for the Davidson College Library, says this about the memoir:
"This is a poignant and captivating story that reveals not just one woman's courage, but that of a whole community of friends and strangers whose lives are changed forever by knowing one another."
Noell is a retired teacher and counselor with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system. She and her husband Tom are involved with the Stephen's Ministries at Davidson College Presbyterian Church. Noell has also written a book of poetry, "Weathered Pine."
When: Sunday, Jan. 25, 2-4 p.m.
Where: The Warehouse Performing Arts Center, 9216-A Westmoreland Road, Cornelius.
Cost: Free and open to the public.
