Meet Henrietta at the Revelator Coffee Shop in downtown Birmingham on Sunday, August 28, 2016
Join me Saturday, at the premiere of First Lady of the Revolution, and on Sunday, meet this First Lady in person.
Sunday afternoon, Henrietta will read from her book, Married To A Legend, “Don Pepe” at the Revelator coffee shop (Sunday, August 28 at 4:00 – 5:00 pm). I have the distinct honor of interviewing Henrietta after her reading and we will discuss her life in Birmingham as well as her experiences as the First Lady of Costa Rica.
This is a unique opportunity to meet a legend in her own right. Henrietta is now 98 years of age and is a native of Birmingham. Despite her extraordinary life, “from southern belle, Revolutionary participant to First Lady of Costa Rica in her late twenties, as well as her extensive travel and remarkable life, Henrietta returned to her Alabama roots. She currently resides in Montgomery, Alabama where she founded the Montgomery Living lifestyle magazine and is an occasional contributor to the Montgomery Advertiser.
