In honor of Black History Month, the Fleetwood-Jordain Center will host eight multi-talented authors reading and performing excerpts from their published works. The 2011 African American Literature Read-In and Book Fair is sponsored by Books Inc Bookstore and organized by
A Work of Faith Ministry & Literacy. The first annual event will take place from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at 1655 Foster Street, Evanston, IL. Evanston Public Library will have a table at the book fair where residents can learn about the library’s collections, programs, book clubs or sign up for a library card. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is encouraged. For information, contact Gevell Wagner at (773) 350-4675.
