"Kid Carolina" Book Discussion in Walkertown on May 11th
Dick Reynolds was dubbed "Kid Carolina" when a teenager. He played a pivotal role in shaping twentieth-century America through his business savvy and politics. He developed Delta and Eastern Airlines, single handedly secured FDR's third term election, and served as mayor of Winston-Salem, where his tobacco fortune was built. Yet below the gilded surface lay a turbulent life that culminated in a surprise fourth marriage and was shortly followed by a strange death.
Read "Kid Carolina" by Heidi Schnakenberg and participate in a book discussion led by historian Fam Brownlee. Learn fascinating facts about local history.
The event sponsored by Friends of the Walkertown Library Book Club.
