Upcoming event: The African-American Literary Festival
A brand-new literary event is happening in Columbia, SC this weekend and the Reading Diva is going!
The African-American Literary Festival will be at the Columbia Conference Center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. I glad they picked this day because Carolina's football team is off this weekend, which means no traffic for the two hours I will have to drive. The event is hosted by the SistahFriend Book Club, which has book clubs in various parts of the country.
The event will feature some well-known names in African-American Literature. Authors include Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant, Mary Monroe, Donna Hill and Marissa Monteilh. There will be author signings and forums, vendors and activities for the little ones.
By Sunday afternoon, I will have pictures and highlights from the festival. I promise I won't take as long as the SC Book Festival.
