Playwright and author Calvin Alexander Ramsey appeared at the Boston Public Library on Sunday to talk about “Ruth and the Green Book,” a story about a young girl who takes a memorable car trip in the 1950s. Ramsey’s reading and discussion celebrated Black History Month. The writer, who was joined by Associates of the BPL board member Mary Lentz and Associates of the BPL board chair Vivian Spiro, lives in
Atlanta, but has spent plenty of
time on Martha’s Vineyard.
