1. The local literary community made out okay at the National Youth Awards this past Saturday. Congrats to Tameka Jarvis-George, Brenda Lee Browne, and the Best of Books. Jarvis-George received the Literary Arts Award, Browne received a Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Best of Books rceived a Corporate Award. It was a good night; congrats to both winners and organizers (on a totally self-indulgent note congrats also to my niece D’jeri for her sports award). Here’s more.
2. Emile Hill’s Angels Project launches this coming Saturday at the National Museum, 8 p.m. Looking forward to it. Congrats to him as well.
3. You have to check this out.
4. And don’t forget all the other fun activity: Mixing poetry and moonlight are Expressions and the Wadadli Pen Open Mic especially – the former the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at Heavenly Java 2 Go and the latter the second Saturday of every month at the Best of Books on Friars Hill Road, #1 Village Walk Mall. No word yet on the December Open Mic theme but I can tell you that Expressions is planning a special screening for its last session of the season, December 13th.
