Wine and Words at Hammonds House Museum

O.V. Brntley, Marva Swanson, Irene Latham, Michelle Gipson and Myrna Anderson-Fuller

Last night  a capacity crowd enjoyed  meeting Irene Latham, author of Leaving Gees Bend at the Wine and Words event at Hammonds House Museum. The event was a collaboration between the Clara Ford Foundation, Hammonds House Museum and Written Magazine and part of the 2010 Atlanta Quilt Festival lineup of activities.

The audience gained insight into the author’s inspiration for the book and were spellbound by her powerful readings from the book and other historical documents. Ms. Latham spoke earlier in the day at the South Fulton Arts Center where the quilt exhibit is ongoing through August 13th.
