Announcing the First of the David and Nancy Nash Program Series

Andra Watkins

The Friends of Brown Library will meet on Sunday, April 28, 2019, in Wesley Hall at The First United Methodist Church, Van Norden Street in Washington, North Carolina. President Katie Lake will give a brief business annual update before the program.

Audra Watkins, Author of the New York Times best-selling memoir "Not Without My Father: One Woman's 444-Mile Walk of the Natchez Trace" will recount her 34-day trek along the Natchez Trace Parkway, from Mississippi to Tennessee, with her octogenarian father as wingman. They have never had a good relationship and this 15-mile-a-day trip is filled with epic misunderstandings. Her books will be available for purchase and signing.
