Haywood Smith - Offering hope and laughter
New York Times Best Selling Local Author shares hope and laughter about serious women’s issues
By Haywood Smith
After having lots of orthopedic problems as a child, I learned to read at a very early age as a means of escape. I loved historical novels and biographies and science fiction and almost any kind of fiction--as long as the books had happy endings. I kept reading voraciously till I graduated high school, including the entire Great Books Collection that belonged to my parents. I had no idea then that those books and the study questions in back would end up being my education in classical literature, philosophy, and science.
