The Caldwell Café Presents "STUDIO IN THE ROUND" with Author My Haley

On Wednesday, Feb. 13, the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications will present a live taping of The Caldwell Café featuring special guest and author, My Haley.

The South Charleston native grew up in Columbus, Ohio, where she earned her doctorate in Communications and met the man she would marry and partner with, author Alex Haley. The two collaborated on the remaining two-thirds of a three-part series that would become the bestselling Roots, one of the most renowned novels in t he world. My Haley is the author of The Treason of Mary Louvestre, an American saga based on the life of a seamstress slave from Norfolk, Va., once a Confederate town.

This "STUDIO IN THE ROUND" will start promptly at 6:15 p.m. in the Scripps Howard Television Studio where My Haley will engage in a one-on-one dialogue with Hampton University's writer-in-residence Professor Earl Caldwell. The taping of The Caldwell Café is scheduled to air at a later date.

The Caldwell Café series is named after Earl Caldwell, writer-in-residence with the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications and a nationally accredited journalist. The series was designed an outlet to help students gain insight to the lives of media and journalism professionals.
