Please join us on Sunday January 25, 2015 from 2 to 4 p.m. as CWC North celebrates the publication of The Medicine Man's Daughter at the Warehouse Performing Arts Center in Cornelius. Carolyn F. Noell will read from her memoir, published by The Bridge. It is a coming of age account of Dayou Tucker, a Liberian refugee who came to Charlotte to escape civil war.
It is a “poignant and captivating story that reveals not just one woman’s courage, but that of a whole community of friends and strangers whose lives are changed forever by knowing one another,” according to Jan Blodgett, archivist for Davidson College Library.
Noell is a retired teacher and counselor with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system. She and her husband Tom live in Davidson where she is involved with the Stephen’s Ministries at Davidson College Presbyterian Church. Noell has also written a book of poetry, Weathered Pine.
