Maryville Talks Books: An Evening with Vanessa Williams and Helen Williams
Join us for a discussion and book signing with entertainer Vanessa Williams and her mother, Helen Williams.

When Vanessa Williams was growing up, she had a plan to become a Broadway star, and her mother was determined to help her achieve it. So when Vanessa became the first African-American woman to win the title of Miss America but was forced to resign ten months later due to a nude photo scandal, their lives took an unexpected turn. But Vanessa survived this setback, and many others to come, to enjoy a thirty-plus-year career as an award-winning singer and actress. "You Have No Idea" is an empowering celebration of the love between a mother and daughter and the life of a woman who beat the odds to achieve her destiny.

Ticket packages are $30 and include seating for two at the talk and book signing, as well as a copy of their book, "You Have No Idea."

Maryville Talks Books is a collaboration between Left Bank Books, Maryville University, St. Louis Public Radio, and HEC-TV.
