Leslie Gray Streeter: Black Widow
The kick-off speaker of the new Authors Speak series is Leslie Gray Streeter, the longtime pop culture columnist for The Palm Beach Post before publishing her widely praised memoir Black Widow. With her signature warmth, hilarity, and tendency to overshare, Streeter looks at widowhood through the prism of race, mixed marriage, and aging. She redefines the stages of grief, from coffin shopping to day-drinking, to being a grown-ass woman crying for your mommy, to breaking up and making up with God, to facing the fact that life goes on even after the death of the person you were supposed to live it with. The theme of this new series is The Impact of Race on American Society and it is jointly presented by the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, Arts Garage, and the Community Redevelopment Agency of Delray Beach.
