Civil rights activist, feminist and author shares work at Ivy Hall series

Join Atlanta, Georgia-based writer Pearl Cleage for a reading and discussion of her 2013 book “Things I Never Told My Daughter: Lies, Lessons and Love Affairs.” A compilation of journal entries, the nonfiction piece addresses the author’s years as a civil rights activist, feminist and author.

Cleage’s body of work includes 13 award-winning plays and numerous bestselling novels, columns, articles and essays for publications including Essence, Ebony, Vibe and The Atlanta Journal Constitution. Her first novel, “What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day,” was an Oprah Book Club pick and on The New York Times Best-seller List for nine weeks. Cleage is a playwright in residence at the Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre, and her plays have been produced in playhouses nationwide.

The lecture is presented as part of the Ivy Hall Writers Series Spring 2014 schedule and is free and open to the public.
