2018 marks our 3rd year in operation with the coming of our main event, Sunday, July 15th. We block off 4 city, genre-specific blocks and feature approximately 100 Black authors and literary organizations that service our community. The funds we raise help enhance the event with great sound & entertainment, bathroom facilities, ample marketing, city fees and other fiscal demands. 2017's event pulled in nearly 4500 visitors, bringing much needed literary living to life!
While our events take place year-round, our summer main event brings Black literature to our south side "book desert." We enhance the literary marketplace for Black writers and give lovers of Black literature exposure to a bevy of newly released titles.
Your demands and support for the past two years have forged us forward into the prediction of a successful 3rd year. Your donations are massively appreciated and we thank you in advance!
