After 40-years, and numerous awards Ruby O'Gray's still got a few worlds left to conquer. Saturday, April 30, she's hosting a signing party for her new book Running Away to Home, which tells the story of Kathleen, a 17-year-old basketball fan who leaves Memphis for New York in 1966, looking for adventure and opportunity.
A portion of the proceeds from each book sold will benefit the Women's Theatre Festival of Memphis, which O'Gray founded.
The book signing takes place at TheatreWorks. 5:30-6:45.
O'Gray also founded the Bluff City Tri-Art Theatre Company, currently producing Gus Edwards' play, The Offering
, which runs through Sunday, at TheatreWorks.
