As part of Black History Month, the Seattle Alumnae Chapter, the Delta Research & Education Foundation and the Elliott Bay Book Company present a book chat and book signing with a co-founder of Essence Magazine, Edward Lewis and co-writer Audrey Edwards.
Essence Magazine is the most popular, well-respected and widely circulated Black women's magazine in history. On this night, Edward Lewis will share the remarkable story of what it took to earn that distinction. Of the four men who started Essence, he emerged as the only partner to survive the battles that raged before the magazine was sold to Time Inc.
Audrey Edwards was a journalist at Redbook when the first issue of Essence Magazine hit the newsstands. She vividly remembers how she first learned about this new magazine for Black women from a worried senior publisher. Both will share their experiences and then Soror Sharon Williams of the CD-Forum will moderate a conversation and a Q & A with you, our audience.
Books will be on sale at the book chat or you can preorder it from the Elliott Bay Book Company using this link.http://www.elliottbaybook.com/book/9781476703480 Tickets are FREE. But the Seattle Alumnae Chapter will be ASKing for donations, at the event to support their public service youth programs and Bertha Pitts Campbell Scholarship Fund.
