Join Max Rodriguez, the Founder of the Harlem Book Fair and co-host, Yiya Lewis, in our launch of the Harlem Book Fair Show on Clubhouse! We promise you will experience the fun and spirit of the Harlem Book Fair. For those of you who are familiar with the conversations we have at the "on the street" book fair, this program is for you...audience and author-driven book talks...with games, book giveaways, merch and discounts, exclusive author interviews, and more.

We'll launch the Book Show on Monday, August 22, at 7:00 pm (EST) with 

a spin on Tina Smith Brown's novel, Fish and Grits. Highly recommended 

by comedian Kevin Hart - and me! - Fish and Grits is simply a masterwork 

that fell under the radar. Read Tina's raves.

 

SPECIAL CLUBHOUSE LAUNCH PRICE: On Amazon.com, Fish and Grits 

(paperback) has been reduced from $15.99 to $9.95. The ebook has been 

reduced from $5.99 to $3.99 for our launch event! (Yeah...it's like that!). 

Read the book and join the discussion...or simply join and listen in. I will 

send "upcoming" reminders.

Praise for the Harlem Book Fair

 

"Since the Harlem Book Fair, I've been crisscrossing the country but didn't want any more time to pass before I expressed my deepest gratitude for all you did to promote SPECTACLE. You brought the work to a national audience and also saw to it that the conversation took place at the Schomburg, which had long been my wish.  I hope the fair was everything you wanted it to be. From where I stood, it was amazing. A triumph. Many, many thanks".

Spectacle: The Astonishing Life of OTA BENGA
 

"The HBF weekend was really great and I was truly thrilled to be a part of it, not to mention honored to win the Wheatley Award. I discovered other books that I plan to buy and read and I made many contacts there that promise to be extremely useful as we launch another social media campaign, promoting A Light Shines as a Wheatley Award winner.

 

You and your staff did a superb job pulling off such a massive undertaking, and all of your hard work showed".
