2008 Essence Literary Award Winning Books Announced http://books.aalbc.com/2008_essence_literary_awards_nominees.htm
Would you believe I attended and forgot my camera! Actually I think I lost it today — cause I can’t find it. Bottom line I don’t have any photos to share. The awards program was a standing room only event. There were plenty of notable authors, celebrities, and book industry professionals. It was a good mix of people. Essence did a fine job for their first literary awards program.
