Stratford Library Special “Meet-the-Author” Event for “Black History Month”


White Wife Blue Baby”

Redding Author Gail Howard
Sunday, February 11Th  from 2-3 p.m.
Free and open to the public
Stratford Library Lovell Room, 2203 Main Street

Join us for this special “Meet-the-Author” program when Gail Howard will discuss her memoir, White Wife/Blue Baby. The talk is presented as part of the nationwide celebration of “Black History Month”.

How long does it take a white wife to unlearn racism? How do Black people keep rage from eating into their hearts? Howard pursues these probing questions, and more. Set within the racial and political turmoil of 1960’s Chicago (and reflective of our current national divide), White Wife/Blue Baby intertwines two stories: marrying across the color line in that superheated time, and nurturing a dangerously ill baby girl.

Autographed copies of Howard’s books will be available for purchase following her talk.
