In the age of the quick fix, MTV, Flavor Flav and Britney Spears, it is great to support an event that promotes the almost lost art of reading a book.
This holiday season, meet authors, buy new books and support reading by checking out the Black Author Showcase Holiday Fair, a production of Liberated Muse member Diane who also is creator of the Ning social networking site of the same name.
The Black Author Showcase will hold its annual Holiday Book Fair on Saturday, December 13, 2008 at The Show Place Arena & Prince George's Equestrian Center, 14900 Pennsylvania Avenue, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772.
The event will present more than 20 national and local Black authors who will speak or perform their latest literary works. The event is free to the public with book giveaways and prize drawings. Attendees are encouraged to bring a new or gently used “Book and a Buck” to support literacy in Kenya. BAS is partnering with Books For Africa in a book drive to benefit the White Cots School Centre.Project.
