Books by Patrice Gaines

Fellow DuValians,

I failed to bring my books to the reunion, so I want to offer them now. I'll autograph copies and mail them.

Here are the books:
  • The autobiography, which includes growing up in Landover and attending DuVal is "Laughing in the Dark, From colored girl to woman of color--a journey from prison to power" For classmates, $15. (Normally $17)

High School Memories

I can't say high school was my favorite time of life.  I was very shy and self-conscious about my clothes, my hair, etc..  (Now I realize how normal that really was, lol!)  Anyway, one day I was walking to class. I walked near the wall out of the way of the rush of oncoming students switching classes. As I approached the teachers' lounge, one of the teachers opened the door and the door hit me right in the face!  I don't know which teacher it was but my gosh did it hurt!! What a memorable da...
