Author Casey Curry was the guest speaker at Second Baptist Church’s annual Signature Tea and Testimony event last Saturday at a Downtown hotel.
More than 100 people, including many women adorned with colorful hats, attended the event that focused on celebrating women, the roles they play and the challenges they have survived.
Several women spoke about their trials and triumphs.
A resident of Odessa, Fla., Ms. Curry is the author and illustrator of a children’s grief book, “I Remember You Today.” She wrote it after her youngest daughter died at age 3 of a brain stem tumor.
Her debut novel, “Promises,” was published last year.
She teaches creative writing and workshops.
Second Baptist is at 1400 Idlewood Ave., and is led by Dr. James H. Harris, senior pastor.
