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.
All events are FREE to attend! Just show up!
August 15th: 5:30 p.m. — 7:30 p.m. *** Westin in the Galleria, Edina MN. Dessert Banquet.
