Join us for a reading with local author Mary Morony, who will read from her new novel, If It Ain’t One Thing…, the third book in her Apron Strings Trilogy.
Mary Morony was born and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia, mainly by her family’s maid. It was a time and place of segregated schools and water fountains, as well as restaurants and movie theaters that prohibited black customers. The mother of four children, she earned a BA in English at the University of Virginia, with a concentration in creative writing, when she was in her forties. Morony was inspired to write the Apron Strings Trilogy by the relationship she was privileged to have with her family’s maid, who taught her love and acceptance with warmth, humor, and unending patience. The author lives on a farm in Orange County, Virginia, with her husband, two Great Danes, and two guinea hens.
