Spotlight on Authors

March 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Pittsburgh Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is hosting a webinar “Spotlight on Authors”, a conversation sure to encourage the writer in you! We have three nationally recognized women authors who are natives of Pittsburgh gracing us this day. By the end of our time together, we hope to inspire others to write and share their own stories! We want to increase exposure of the authors while promoting their work and increasing sales!

In the Spotlight, our Authors are:

Deesha Philyaw is a nationally recognized author who wrote “The Secret Lives of Church Ladies”, a book recommended by Essence magazine and is being adapted into a production that will be featured on HBO/ HBO Max.

Dr. Margaret Larkins-Pettigrew is a accomplished Obstetrics Gynecologic physician, professor and leader in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion turned author. She is pursuing her passion in writing about the perils of African American women as it relates to the realities of politics, sexism, racism, drugs & the criminal system.

Debra Clark is a well known author who shares stories about the struggle of slavery, family narratives and the success of African Americans despite the Jim Crow era.
