Subject: you are cordially invited to the forum: SEPARATE BUT EQUAL? African American Authors in Bookstores
You are cordially invited to this exciting discussion about the role that race places in bookstores today in 2007...
For The People Productions, along with its client Conversations Book Club, is always looking for avenues to not only encourage reading but open up dialogue as well among book-lovers. It is with this in mind that is announces the first of many discussions geared at addressing the challenges that authors face when marketing their books.
On Friday, March 2, 2007 we will host "SEPARATE BUT EQUAL? African American Authors in Bookstores". This discussion will take place at the Medgar Evers Library meeting room (4215 Medgar Evers Blvd./Jackson, MS) beginning at 6p.m. The focus will be addressing the pros and cons of separating authors by race in chain bookstores as well as how it affects the sales of the authors and their ability to reach a wider audience.
The guest author for the discussion will be bestselling horror author Brandon Massey(www.brandonmassey.com), who discussed this subject with the Wall Street Journal in December 2006. He will be joining the group via conference call. The conversation will be moderated by media personality C. A. Webb.
This event is free to the public and all book lovers are invited to attend. Refreshments will be provided.
