Moliere
Moliere

(Jan. 15, 1622 - Feb. 17, 1673)

Born Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, Moliere took his pseudonym when founding the troupe L'Illustre Theatre - which became bankrupt two years later. Many years later in 1658, he moved to Paris and began acting in plays at the Louvre, where his acting talent was recognized and he began acting in Comedia dell'Arte productions. He premiered his first play a year later, and became widely recognized as a playwright. He is most famous for his one-act farces, depicting the falseness and unintentional humor of personal and romantic relationships.

"UNCLE OTTO takes you there. It is a uniquely American story of struggle and hope set against the tumultuous growth of this nation and told though the lives of people you want and get to know like family. Read Winfred’s UNCLE OTTO and be wholly transported." -Anna Perez, Communications Executive, former White House Press Secretary

It was pitch black in the Bottom that Sunday morning at two o’clock, until it started to rain. The luminescent monsoon rendered the cabins visible. The drumming rhythm of the rain on the galvanized tin roofs varied with the heaviness of the torrent. Within two hours, the dirt road’s potholes and crevices transformed into small ...

Saturday, August 11, 1934, was etched permanently in John Laronde’s mind. It had begun as any other, with no premonition of the terror waiting at his office.

He dallied over his breakfast, savored a second cup of coffee, and had his usual morning chat with his lovely Ruth and their beloved daughter, Helen, in the cool, old-fashioned dining room of Windsong, their magnificent plantation manse. Typical in fine Southern homes built one hundred years earlier, a magnificent, hand-polished, mahogany ceiling punkah, or fly fan, hung lazily above the Louis XIV dining table.
