Good morning, everyone. I want to let you know that next month, the Harlem Writers Guild will be having an event at the Schomburg Center.
It will be on Thursday, November 7th, from 6:30-8pm.
On a personal note.. while I am looking forward to all of the upcoming appearances that I’m fortunate to be participating in.. the one at the Schomburg next month holds a special significance to me. I wrote these projects at this very library, and now am presenting them there. #fullcircle
Here is the information for the event:
The Harlem Writers Guild is a forum where writers of African descent have developed their craft for decades. Literary giants such as Maya Angelou, Louise Merriwether, John Oliver Killens, Rosa Guy, John Herik Clarke, Paule Marshall and others have been affiliated with the Guild. The Guild has also had a longstanding presence at the Schomburg Center.
Learn about the history of the Guild and current members — including Judy Andrews, Eartha Watts Hicks, Marc Polite, Angela Dews and Minnette Coleman — will be reading from their works. A brief Q & A will follow the readings.
