RESHONDRA TATE BILLINGSLEY

TUESDAY, AUGUST 13; 7 PM

RESHONDRA TATE BILLINGSLEY will introduce A Family Affair. When Olivia Dawson turns down the opportunity to study dance at Juilliard to stay in Houston and take care of her ailing mother, her mother objects to her sacrificing college for her sake. A series of events is set in place when the mother, Lorraine, reveals to Olivia that her father had not died years ago as she had been told, but is alive and well---and is now the powerful CEO of one of the country’s most successful corporations. Olivia vows to find her father and find out why he abandoned the two of them when she was 3 years old and left them to suffer in poverty, while he gave his “real” wife and son a life of luxury.

They all realize that the pain of yesterday’s decisions must be confronted before true healing and a bright tomorrow can begin.

ReShonda Tate Billingsley’s #1 bestselling novels include the NAACP Image Award winner Say Amen, Again, and Let the Church Say Amen, soon to be a BET original movie.
