Author's Talk at Rosedale Library: Anthony Johnson
Event announcement for Rosedale Library (1701 Gales Street):
The "Author Talk" program this Tuesday, January 14 at 7 p.m. will feature DC native, Anthony Johnson, discussing his book, "The Dum One", about his childhood in DC's Kenilworth Gardens, as one of six illiterate children of a hard-working but uneducated mother. He'll talk about his determination to learn, and how he was helped by his tutor, Beverly Green, co-author of the book. Mr. Johnson is now an advocate for adult literacy.
Mentors and those considering mentoring will find this an especially interesting presentation. Information about and applications for volunteering/mentoring at the Library will be available.
Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Rosedale Library.
