From one writer to another

“From one writer to another.” That’s the inscription in my book signed by legendary author Lawrence Hill, the famed Canadian author of the Book of Negroes and Any Given Blood among other publications.

I can’t tell you how happy I was to have been able to meet him at the Fifth Annual Promised Land Symposium. Here are a few photos below at the book signing. I was also asked to send him a copy of my book Dying in the Land of Enchantment, such a thrill for me. ┬áIt was a wonderful evening listening to his stories about his experiences growing up in Toronto, researching for the Book of Negroes, and learning about Black History from his perspective. If you get the chance to see him speak in person I encourage all of you to do so.
