(BPRW) The African American Book Festival set for April 16 in Richmond, VA

Celebrating African Americans contributions to literature, books, literacy, and the literary culture.

(Black PR Wire) Richmond, VA - THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER!  Virginia Business Expo Associates and Richmond Public Library proudly presents Richmond 1st Annual African American Book Festival.

“The African American Book Festival” was built to give the cemented and newly emerging authors of our culture a platform to spread the messages that are embedded in the pages of their iconography. With one goal in mind, we want to educate, entertain, and impact the Richmond community through African American literature, by shining light on the stories told in their books.

This event is a great opportunity for community members to meet and engage with their favorite black authors. There will be several featured authors.

Come out to support your black authors, meet them face to face, get pictures, buy books at discounted prices, network with other professionals, and bring back reading books into normalcy and support authors in spreading their messages.

What can you expect

This event will feature author and publisher exhibits, author discussions and book signings, entertainment, networking and door prizes. The event will attract a wide array of authors, publishers, book clubs, libraries and individual readers. Books available will be suitable to all ages; from children, teenagers, young adults to adults. Authors will present fiction, poetry, nonfiction, memoirs, self-help, and spiritual offerings.

This event is free and open to the public. Come enjoy this free community Festival that celebrates the beauty, power, passion, and excitement of the written work.
