Minrose Gwin - Promise: A Novel In the aftermath of the April 5, 1936 tornado that ripped through Tupelo, Mississippi, one-third of the population was not included in the official casualty figures because they were black. In this ficitonalized account of the true event, Minrose Gwin tells the story of those left uncounted. Told through the experiences of two remarkable women – one black, one white; one a great-grandmother, the other a teenager – comes a tale of history, connections, and ultimately, survival. Gwin brings us Promise: A Novel. “Promise is an extraordinary novel [...] one of racial divides, good and evil, destruction and salvation and those clear moments of grace and humanity that bring hope into the most desperate times. I could not put it down.” — Jill McCorkle, author of Going Away Shoes Event date: Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 7:00pm Event address: North Hills 4209-100 Lassiter Mill Road Raleigh, NC 27609
