Women On Maintaining Education and Nutrition to Host “Book on the Bridge”
Celebrating Catherine Wyatt-Morley’s Latest Book: My Life With AIDS, Tragedy to Triumph
Women On Maintaining Education and Nutrition (W.O.M.E.N.) Founder and Chief Executive Officer Catherine Wyatt-Morley will hold a signing for her third book, My Life with AIDS, Tragedy to Triumph on Friday, June 21, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. on the Renaissance Hotel pedestrian bridge at 611 Commerce St., Nashville, Tenn.
“My Life with AIDS, Tragedy to Triumph addresses difficulties facing minorities, women, and children with HIV/AIDS and the families who are both affected and effected by the disease.” said Wyatt-Morley. “It also sounds the alarm to those minorities, women and children at risk of contracting the infection. HIV/AIDS has touched my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. Here I share the ways the disease has touched me, my children and others.”
W.O.M.E.N will host an evening of celebration to honor Wyatt-Morley on My Life with AIDS, Tragedy to Triumph. The event is free and open to the public, and will take place on the pedestrian bridge connecting the Renaissance Hotel and the Nashville Public Library parking garage. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be offered. Music will be performed by Keith Floyd, as well as moments of inspiration shared by keynote speaker, State Representative Brenda Gilmore, author of the foreword of My Life with AIDS, Tragedy to Triumph, Theodora Pinnock, M.D. as well as Catherine Wyatt Morley.
“By letting readers into the lives and inner thoughts of HIV-positive women, she empowers women everywhere, demonstrating the way forward,” says Wendy Horn, PhD., President and Principal Writer, Insight Communications Group. “Catherine’s book is in turn enlightening, entertaining, educational, and always moving.”
W.O.M.E.N. is the only 19 year old HIV/AIDS social service, community-based agency founded, organized and administered by an African American mother living with AIDS in Tennessee. Catherine’s efforts have been honored with a plaque in the Women’s National Hall of Fame and she is a recipient of SELF Magazine‘s ‘Women Doing Good’ award, which honors women changing the world for the better.
