Middletown Arts Center Presents REPURCHASED Book-Reading And Q&A Produced By Dunbar Repertory Co., October 8

This special book-reading and Q&A session directed by Mark Antonio Henderson takes place on Sunday, October 8, 2023, from 4-6 p.m. at the Middletown Arts Center. A book-signing period follows the presentation and copies of Repurchased will be available for purchase. 

 

Admission is $9 at the door. The Middletown Arts Center is located at 36 Church Street in Middletown, NJ (next to the Middletown train station).

Repurchased is the story of an American woman's sacrifice to save her family in a foreign land by surrendering to an unforeseen but very real power that manifested itself in her daily life and protected her from a family's ultimate betrayal.

 

With a career that spans over 20 years in broadcast news and entertainment, advertising and higher education abroad, Williams began her career path as a researcher for the news library at ABC, before landing her first assignment desk job as a logistics coordinator for the 6 PM Nightly News with Peter Jennings. After getting married and relocating to Washington, DC, Williams became a logistics manager on the CNN assignment desk and, for a short period, freelanced with Fox's America's Most Wanted as an associate producer. She later became involved in advertising, working for DDB Advertising and SpikeDDB in New York, NY, as a project manager, working alongside talented, creative and account teams that developed the brand image for clients like United Technologies and Breyer's Ice Cream. 

 

“One of my greatest passions, aside for the love I have for my sons, has been sharing my experiences of living abroad with others. I like offering enlightenment and clarity to questions that I might not have had the answers to otherwise. My intention for this book has been to give a legitimate basis for those reading it to feel empowered as they pull something from my experience that strengthens their own. In closing, long story short, my book is not about holding you to something but about helping to set you free.”

 

Known to residents of Central New Jersey as “Monmouth County's African American Theater Company”, Dunbar Repertory Company is committed to its mission of perpetuating an appreciation of cultural diversity and celebrating African American culture through LIVE literary readings, main stage theatrical productions, education programs and services.
