Hi Meltingpot Readers,
You may call this shameless self-promotion, but I prefer to think of it as sharing good news. Tomorrow is the first day of the 11th annual National Black Writer's Conference, and if you live in the New York City area, you should come check it out. And not just because I'll be reading at 12:00pm on Saturday with Jacqueline Luckett and Teju Cole. This year's conference theme is: The Impact of Migration, Popular Culture and the Natural Environment in the Literature of Black Writers. The line-up of speakers, panelists and special events is phenomenal and most events are free and open to the public. The conference runs from Thursday, March 29 - Sunday April 1.
I hope to see some of you there.
