The 2nd Annual Sacramento Black Book Fair – held in eight different venues – offered a plethora of informative, engaging, and entertaining activities from which to choose. The Brick House Art Gallery hosted a fabulous Kids Zone, with African drumming and dance provided by Jodama Drum & Dance, and vendors who introduced community-based organizations, such as Sojourner Truth Museum, Sacramento Area Youth Speaks, Black Child Development Institute, and Read Across Jamaica. Plus, the Crocker Art Museum’s Art Ark made an appearance. You’ll also meet four authors who attended an evening at Underground Books: Nicholas Powers, Cedric J. Boy, Kakwasi Somadhi, and Sandy Lynne Holman.
Book events provide a treasure trove of literary treats. This week, you are introduced to a wide range of genres through brief conversations with over a dozen authors at the California Capital Book Festival.
Also, we visit Great Basin National Park in Nevada.
Includes interviews with columnists of iPinion Syndicate – David Lacy, Kelvin Wade, Donald Sanders, Pat Ridgley, Carolyn Wyler, David Weinshilboum – showcasing the diversity of writers’ backgrounds and subjects.
