Ford Evening Book Talk: Eric L. Motley
Mount Vernon welcomes Washington Library Cabinet member and author Eric L. Motley to the Robert H. and Clarice Smith Auditorium to discuss his book Madison Park: A Place of Hope. This charming, engaging, and deeply inspiring memoir will help you remember that we can create a world of shared values based on love and hope. It is a story that reveals the amazing power of faith in God and each other.
Eric L. Motley grew up in Montgomery, Alabama, the son of adoptive grandparents who raised him in the community of Madison Park, which was founded by freed slaves in 1880. From this beginning in the black community he rose to become a special assistant to President George W. Bush.
