THIS EVENT HAS TAKEN PLACE AND IS RECORDED HERE AS AN HISTORICAL ARCHIVE.
For the first time, the NAACP will sponsor an author pavilion during its annual convention, to be held this year in Detroit July 7-12. The pavilion will feature presentations by 40 book authors, including presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, in addition to her husband, former president Bill Clinton.
The Author Pavilion was created and organized by Mocha Ochoa, an independent literary event planner, who also plans to launch an Internet TV show, In the Cafe with Mocha, that will kick off at the NAACP convention and feature interviews with 10 authors by Ochoa. The interviews will be streamed over the Web and be available through the NAACP Web site (NAACP.org) and at Ochoa's site, theoraclegroup.net.
