African Queen


Groundbreaking journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault imparts pearls of wisdom during today's Writers and Readers Series at Cleveland Public Library's main branch. Following her 1992 memoir, In My Place, the 65-year-old wordsmith collected enough hardware to warrant her own trophy room. The autobiography documented the tough times before Hunter-Gault became the first black student to graduate from the University of Georgia. It also chronicled her years as a reporter for The New Yorker and The New York Times. Hunter-Gault was later hired as a correspondent in Africa for CNN and NPR, where her work netted a cache of Emmys and a Peabody. Let her tell you about it at 2 this afternoon at the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium of Cleveland Public Library, 326 Superior Avenue. Admission is free. Call 216-623-2800 or visit
