May 11: Writing Memoir: Judy Goldman in Conversation with Tommy Tomlinson

Join us at 6 p.m. on May 11 to talk memoir with Judy Goldman, author of three memoirs including the May 2022 release Child, and Tommy Tomlinson, author of The Elephant in the Room.

Child is the story of Judy Goldman's relationship with Mattie Culp, the Black woman who worked for her family as a live-in maid and helped raise her―the unconscionable scaffolding on which the relationship was built and the deep love. It is also the story of Mattie's child, who was left behind to be raised by someone else. Judy, now eighty, cross-examines what it was to be a privileged white child in the Jim Crow South, how a bond can evolve in and out of step with a changing world, and whether we can ever tell the whole truth, even to ourselves.

Free, but space is limited, so registration is required. Adult beverages and snacks will be provided, with books by Judy and Tommy available for purchase and signing. Please Note: Proof of full Covid vaccination is required to attend in-person Charlotte Lit events.
