Attention New Yorkers: Next Monday, October 6, at 7 p.m., Geoff Canada and I will be speaking at the Barnes & Noble in Union Square. I’ll read a little from Whatever It Takes, and Geoff and I will both speak, answer questions and sign books. Please come on by and join us.
On Wednesday, October 29, at 7 p.m., I’ll be at McNally Jackson bookstore, at 52 Prince St. in New York, reading from Whatever It Takes and talking about the Harlem Children’s Zone with Sharon Jarvis, Senior Reference Librarian at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
