Charlotte Harbor Book Festival: I Remember Mawzy
February 25 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
The Charlotte Harbor Book Festival presents “I Remember Mawzy” with author Myra Allen Kingsbury. Kingsbury’s strongest influence was her grandmother, who she called Mawzy. Her tribute to Mawzy, a lavishly illustrated allegory of life in the mountain towns of West Virginia, is the basis of her lecture on how writers can capture, catalog, and recreate their ancestry. Registration is suggested but not required to attend.
Myra Allen Kingsbury was raised in the hills of southern West Virginia in the unincorporated town of Springdale. She received her undergraduate degree at Concord University in Athens West Virginia and a master’s degree from Ohio State University. The majority of her working career was spent as a financial advisor and CFP.
Visit the Charlotte Harbor Book Festival webpage for a list of complete events. This festival is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Book Festival Grant in partnership with the Military Heritage Museum.
