When the book releases on June 13, several of the local residents who shared their stories with Lanier will be in attendance, such as Pauline Norman, Reverend Dr. Arnetta Beverly, Etta White, Bobby Ricks and Dr. Lacy H. Caple.
The event will run from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Everyone is invited to bring a garden chair or a blanket. Reverend Sherise Lindsay will host, DJ Anthony Fuller will spin tunes and Reverend Paul Milton will speak. The books will be available for purchase.
“I know so many people,” Lanier said in a previous interview of the book. “I don’t know all of their stories, but I know everyone has a story to tell. I love that they invite me over to their house.”
Lanier was one of 46 artists from Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford and Randolph counties who received an Artist Support Grant from ArtsGreensboro and the Winston-Salem and Forsyth County Arts Council to support the development professional and artistic. The grant helped Lanier finance the publication of the book.
