Local author Danielle Henderson will talk about her memoir, answer questions, and sign copies of her book, The Ugly Cry.
Abandoned at ten years old by a mother who chose her drug-addicted, abusive boyfriend, Danielle was raised by grandparents who thought their child-rearing days had ended in the 1960s. She grew up Black, weird, and overwhelmingly uncool in a mostly white neighborhood in upstate New York, which created its own identity crises. Under the eye-rolling, foul-mouthed, loving tutelage of her uncompromising grandmother — and the horror movies she obsessively watched — Danielle grew into a tall, awkward, Sassy-loving teenager who wore black eyeliner as lipstick and struggled with the aftermath of her mother’s choices. But she also learned that she had the strength and smarts to save herself, her grandmother gifting her a faith in her own capabilities.
With humor, wit, and deep insight, Danielle shares how she grew up and grew wise — and the lessons she’s carried from those days to these. In the process, she upends our conventional understanding of family and redefines its boundaries to include the millions of people who share her story. -- Amazon.comLocation:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult
