Councilman Bernard Parks Encourages Participation at Leimert Book Fair

Councilman Bernard Parks welcomes
all the speakers, writers, volunteers, entertainers and visitors to the Leimert Park Village Book Fair.
He encouraged visitors to support the local businesses surrounding us in this lovely neighborhood and to buy books. He also shared his vision of combining this book fair with an art fair next year - with the continuing emphasis on African-American writers and artists.
Several acts appeared throughout the day on the stage where the Councilman stands. Although I was at my booth interacting with patrons and zipping around meeting other authors, I did manage to get completely hooked by several wonderful jazz singers and rap groups who were terrific!
