Free speaker & film Aug. 17 in Camp Springs

Author Del Walters (formerly of Channel 7 News) is speaking on his book "The Race" at Davies Memorial UU Church, 7400 Temple Hill Rd., Camp Springs, Aug. 17 at 10:30 AM (free - donation accepted) followed by his movie, "Apocalypse Africa, Made in America". There will be soup available for lunch with a donation to the food pantry. He will also autograph his book for you.

Del Walters says, "Since leaving channel 7, I have begun anew. I am now an author, The RACE, which is about a black political candidate who could win it all, if he can survive. The book is a work of fiction that was written three and a half years ago long before Barack announced. It is in stock at Borders on the Capitol Blvd Center and I would love to come to your church for a signing."
