Author Event: Randall Horton, Ph.D.

Wednesday, June 29th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room
Randall Horton
Hook: A Memoir is a gripping story of transformation. Without excuse or indulgence, author and educator Randall Horton explores his downward spiral: from unassuming Howard University undergraduate, to homeless drug addict, international cocaine smuggler, and incarcerated felon. Then he shows us the redemptive role that writing and literature played in helping him reclaim his life. Please join us for this special author event as Mr. Horton shares his story. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Randall Horton is the recipient of the Gwendolyn Brooks Poetry Award, the Bea Gonzalez Poetry Award and a National Endowment of the Arts Fellowship in Literature. He teaches at the University of New Haven.

Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. They believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth’s history. Number five took out the dinosaurs. This era is called the Anthropocene, or ‘Age of Man’, because the evidence shows that humanity has sparked this catastrophic loss. Join us to view the film and share in a discussion immediately following. Refreshments served. Scott Gray and Sonya Wulff will introduce the film and lead the discussion.
