Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

August 13, 2019 - The Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home will welcome famed music producer, songwriter and author Tena Clark on Sunday, Sept. 8, at 4 p.m. to open their Fall Lecture Series. Clark will speak about Southern Discomfort, her memoir about growing up in the South. Her childhood was permeated by many of the themes of O’Connor’s own life and work. Clark was born in 1953 in a tiny Mississippi town close to the Alabama border, a time and place rife with racial tension, social injustice and unhealed wounds just behind the fairytale facade.

A successful musician and Grammy Award-winning producer, Clark was discovered by Stevie Wonder and once in Hollywood she wrote and produced for Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Patti LaBelle, Leann Rimes, Dionne Warwick, Chaka Khan, Maya Angelou and many more. 

All events in the lecture series are free and open to the public, and take place in the parlor of the Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home, located at 207 E. Charlton Street on Lafayette Square in downtown Savannah.

Copies of Southern Discomfort will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
