Weekend Brings the Harlem Book Fair To Chicago
Chicago IL - 220 Communications and QBR The Black Book Review have teamed up
to bring the famed Harlem Book Fair to Chicago on Friday and Saturday, September
7-8 2007, at Little Black Pearl Art Design Center, 1060 East 47th Street, in Chicago’s Hyde Park Community. The two-day event features art, spoken word, and authors from around the country, as well as a number of surprises including speakers and prize drawings.
The event will feature over 35 authors, poets, and artisans beginning with Friday
evening’s “Rock The Word”, a Harlem Book Fair spoken word music concert, from
6-10 PM. Performers include artists from Chicago’s popular Ear Candy poetry troupe.
Saturday is the 4th annual Authors and Artists Event from 1 – 5PM. The event will
feature authors selling their books, guest lecturers and the popular charity drawing.
Last year over $3000 in prizes was awarded to attendees.
Now in its 9th year, the Harlem Book Fair was founded by Max Rodriguez, founder and
publisher of QBR, as a community event and forum for readers to discover, experience
and celebrate African American history and culture through books. Harlem Book Fair
events are presently hosted in New York City, Buffalo NY, Boston MA, Hartford CT,
and Toronto CD. Visit QBR.com for more information on the Harlem Book Fair.
