Author’s Talk & Book Signing with Eric Motley

June 20, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC-6


In this beautifully written book, Eric Motley shares his personal odyssey of grace and gratitude. This is a memoir about love – love of family, community, literature, language, and ideas.

The Ann Korologos Gallery Art & Literature Program presents Eric Motley, author of the memoir Madison Park: A Place of Hope, for an author’s talk and book signing on Wednesday June 20, from 5 to 7PM at Ann Korologos Gallery. “In this compelling memoir, Eric shows how his life trajectory was shaped by the self-reliance instilled by his grandparents – but also the timely support of a close-knit community of mentors and supporters. Whatever attributes we ourselves bring to the table, our networks propel us further,” shared Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn.

Eric Motley, executive vice president of The Aspen Institute and former special assistant to President George W. Bush, grew up in a rural Alabama town founded by freed slaves. Raised by adoptive grandparents, Eric benefited from the care of the whole neighborhood, which instilled in him values of hope, self-determination, and generosity, and which prized education and faith. He tells the story of this proud black community in his memoir, Madison Park: A Place of Hope.
