Self-published and first-time authors don’t often tour to support their works, so take advantage of the Howard University Bookstore’s Independent Authors Fair this evening and see 20 local and national names. The authors, whose books focus on everything from entrepreneurship to African American culture to relationships, include Howard alum Shayna Rudd, who founded the LadyDiva Corporation to empower women, and whose book is Lady Lessons: The LadyDiva Guide to Embracing the Truth About You!, a guide to self-acceptance.
Other authors include Chuanda Mason, who has written Love Made Me Crazy, about dating and relationship woes; Gretchen Lofland‘s Sounds in My Head, a book about poetry education; and Galuminatti, author of G-Noetry: Affairs of the Heart, a book of poetry about love, politics, and spirituality.
During the fair the authors will be reading from and signing their works. Refreshments will be served, and there will be a DJ and raffles.
THE FAIR IS FROM 5-7 P.M. TONIGHT AT THE HOWARD UNIVERSITY BOOKSTORE, 2225 GEORGIA AVE. NW. FREE. (202) 238-2640.
