Author Talk: Angela Williams

Join us for Angela William's visit to Main Street Books to talk about and sign her biographical memoir, Hush Now, Baby.

Author Angela Williams has been waiting to tell this story for 50 years. In a revealingand uprooting biographical memoir, Williams pulls back the curtain on the story of race, love and loyalty in the Deep South. As teacher, lecturer, community activist, consultant, author and personal/professional coach, Williams draws on her experience  and literary expertise to bring to light the untold story: that black women in the 60s were the unflinching heroes of our time. 

She graduated from Queens University in Charlotte, taught English at The Citadel for 20 years, after earning her Masters in English at Duke University – Williams lives in Mt.  Pleasant, SC. You’ll find her playing tennis, reading to her grandsons, or sipping tea  on her porch overlooking the water that brought so many African Americans to its shore. . .and thinking of Eva.
