Posted By on Fri, Apr 29, 2016 at 10:51 AM

After 40-years, and numerous awards Ruby O'Gray's still got a few worlds left to conquer. Saturday, April 30, she's hosting a signing party for her new book Running Away to Home, which tells the story of Kathleen, a 17-year-old basketball fan who leaves Memphis for New York in 1966, looking for adventure and opportunity. 

A portion of the proceeds from each book sold will benefit the Women's Theatre Festival of Memphis, which O'Gray founded. 

The book signing takes place at TheatreWorks. 5:30-6:45.
