7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

M. Ruth Little | The Book of Ruth
Book Launch at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh

Thursday, April 7th 7:00-8:00pm

In her memoir, M. Ruth Little narrates fifty years of adventures, from preservation activist in the 1970s to consultant, author and artist in the 2010s. Ruth takes the reader on an emotional journey through many of North Carolina’s unique historic places as she tames her metaphorical ghosts of patriarchy, travel anxiety, and relationships.

The Book of Ruth shows what happens when an artist and a historian inhabit the same life. The ghosts she tames are those she carries from her childhood and those she finds in the lost places of North Carolina. The artist examines those ghosts from all sides and uses her art to understand them.

M. Ruth Little is the owner of Longleaf Historic Resources and Longleaf Studio in Raleigh, N.C. Her works of art and architectural history include Sticks and Stones: Three Centuries of North Carolina Gravemarkers and Carolina Cottage, A Personal History of the Piazza House.
