Mr Ferai Caldwell – founder of the AAABookFest – was looking to increase the numbers attending the AAABookfest. He seeks to promote African American writing. I am not American of African (Irish in London) but I have written a book that has appeal for the audience.
This year I took part as a book donor to the Atlanta Children’s Book Drive with my book A Fairy in the Family. I think the books have gone to Fulton County Library.
I was invited to add my book to the Freedom Bookstore. That was very exciting – I would have been in some very good company – however my book needs reformatting so next year it will be. Diversity will be a theme in the 2020 AAABookFest and I hope my London Irish book finds a kindly audience.
