In the Frunchroom: Rayshauna Gray

Fall is (finally) in the air and that means the Beverly Art Walk isn’t far behind.

This year marks the 5th anniversary of this new Beverly/Morgan Park tradition. Without our friends at the Beverly Area Arts Alliance, The Frunchroom simply would not, could not, be. We are very proud to be a part of Beverly Art Walk Week with out next show this Tuesday at Beverly Arts Center.

Without further ado, our first reader for this special edition of The Frunchroom is Rayshauna Gray.

Rayshauna is a Chicagoan living in Cambridge. She’s thrilled to be living her childhood dream of being a time traveling storyteller. She loves researching with Tufts University’s history department, Harvard’s Slavery Research Project, and petting all the good dogs in Boston.

She’s currently putting the finishing touches on Roseland, a book about the last 200 years of her family’s history through the last seven generations of women in her family (out with Belt Publishing in Fall 2019).

Her Frunchroom story is about history and circumstance. She’ll be sharing her love of the South Side (specifically Roseland and Beverly) and how circumstance unfolded in *just* the right ways to get us in the same room.

See Rayshauna and the rest of our readers at Beverly Arts Center this Tuesday at 730pm.

Tuesday, September 25th, 730pm, Beverly Arts Center. $5 donation requested to benefit the Beverly Area Arts Alliance.
