Shirley Tucker will be touring the United States, and especially the upper midwest, the week of August 15-24. Below is a list of events currently scheduled. If you would like Shirley to come to your venue, please contact Anthony at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
Note, Shirley is also available to speak with her husband, Mark, about their micro-lending charity in South Africa. The Phakamani Foundation was the Tucker’s response to the extreme poverty they see in their home country. This poverty is a backdrop to Diamonds in the Dust.
These events will all include Shirley and involve a reading from her book and a discussion about her experiences as a writer, as well as about life in South Africa, etc. Events given a *** will likely include Mark, as well, and talk more specifically about their charitable efforts to fight poverty in South Africa.
