I am a book lover and reader from the earliest time as a child in elementary school on up to the present.
Books are the path to knowledge, fun, joy, adventure, and meditation.
Books lead to writing, critical thinking and the dissemination of information.
Therefore, it is my pleasure to announce the ninth anniversary of the National Black Book Festival, convening in Houston, Texas on October 27-29 , 2016.
