Pauley Lecture

On Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 4 p.m. in the Sunrise Theater in Southern Pines, the Ruth Pauley Lecture Series presents Barbara Claypole White, whose topic is “A Crazy Little Thing Called OCD.” When White’s son was 4 years old, he became terrified of life. It would be several years before she and her husband received a diagnosis — obsessive-compulsive disorder — and even longer before they found the right therapist. Two decades later, she and her son both use art to process their family’s ongoing journey with this chronic condition. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Oberlin College, White’s son is now an award-winning poet and musician. White’s first five novels have all won various awards, and the fifth, “The Promise Between Us,” won the Nautilus Award, which celebrates books that foster positive change in the world. She is working on her sixth novel and is a tireless OCD advocate. This lecture is hosted by the League of Women Voters.
