RED TAIL HEART: AUTHOR KENNETH WILLIAMS
Wednesday, May 9 @ 6:30 PM: Author Kenneth A. Williams was raised by his widowed grandmother in near-poverty in a small Oklahoma town, but with her support and encouragement he earned his JD degree from Cornell University. He now practices law and resides in Connecticut with his wife and three children and recently published his first novel, Red Tail Heart: The Life and Love of a Tuskegee Airman. The novel follows divorce attorney Chris Irvin, who gains the confidence to find love for himself after he uncovers letters belonging to his great uncle Roy, who was a Tuskegee Airman during World War II. Uncle Roy's heart-wrenching story is one of love lost and regained. In the author's words, "This story explores love in all forms. Romantic, erotic, parent and child, God and man, dysfunctional, all in the context of one man's extraordinary journey through life." Join author Kenneth A. Williams as he leads us through Chris and Uncle Roy's story. Registration is recommended. Call 860-627-1495.
