Hot off the press in July of this year, Patrick Diamond’s multilayered debut memoir describes the tremendous impact of a grandmother’s love and how art educated one young child about his own history and culture. The author will discuss what he and his wife Judy learned over the course of four decades of collecting art; a question and answer session will follow. Diamond is a past member of Reynolda’s National Advisory Council and former Development Director of the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts + Culture in Charlotte. To purchase a book from the Museum Store, please contact Beth Warren, retail manager, at warrenb@wfu.edu. The first 20 people to purchase will receive a signed copy. In an effort to show our support for those isolated at senior care facilities, please consider purchasing an additional book which Reynolda will donate to the community. This program is presented in collaboration with Bookmarks and Triad Cultural Arts.
