I don’t have much new to talk about today, so I wanted to spotlight the Juneteenth Book Fest, created by author L.L. McKinney, happening today, June 19. Including a panel called- Black Love: Writing Black Romance with Farrah Rochon, Beverly Jenkins, Rebekah Weatherspoon and moderated by Alyssa Cole. See the thread below for the full list of panels.
About The Festival: Juneteenth Book Fest seeks to use this day of jubilation to boost and celebrate Black American stories and the people behind them. From writers, to artists, to industry pros, the goal is to shine a light on the width and breadth of Black American literature, to strengthen the connection to the communities we write for, and to honor the legacy of Black American storytelling.
