2012 African American Authors Expo
What do Snoop Dogg's grandmother, a Harlem Globetrotter, the Beltway sniper's ex-wife and Michael Vick's aunt have in common?
They are published African-American authors with amazing stories to tell and they will be in Timonium to share their craft at the third annual African American Authors Expo and Multi-Cultural Book Fair.
The expo will be a meeting place for more than 75 participating authors, hosting a variety of book talks about everything from dealing with stress to motivating entrepreneurs to understanding the power of black women, according to a release.
“Our new location in Timonium, MD makes it possible for us to provide book lovers of all ages with even more access to African American authors,” Patricia Johnson, the coordinator of this annual event, wrote in a release.
Aspiring writers will benefit from the professional development workshops, while younger attendees might enjoy the scavenger hunt for book lovers and the writing challenge for teen writers—two new events added this year.
The event is scheduled to take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel located 2004 Greenspring Drive in Timonium, MD (21093) on August 18, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
